Satyendra Jain, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, filed a petition with the Delhi High Court to contest the transfer of the Enforcement Directorate’s investigation into money laundering against him from a Special Court to another judge today.

Senior Attorney Rahul Mehra was given permission by a division bench that included Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad to bring up the issue urgently on Monday.

The Chief District and Sessions Judge of the Rouse Avenue Courts earlier today approved a request made by the investigation agency to transfer the case against Jain.

The case will now be heard by Special Judge Vikas Dhull instead of Special Judge Geetanjali Goel, who was previously hearing it.

Speaking of the situation before the High Court, Mehra argued that it was urgent because the new judge had only been granted a week to consider the issue, which was ordered to be heard every day starting at 2 p.m. today.

“The case will be heard every day beginning today at 2 PM. A sense of urgency exists.”

When asking for the matter to be listed on Monday, Mehra stated that his right would become infructuous.
