What is the matter?

In 2017, the Central Bureau of Investigation in 2017 accused Jain and others of money laundering of Rs 11.78 crore during 2010-2012 and Rs 4.63 crore during 2015-16, when he became a minister in the Delhi government. It was alleged that the money laundering exercise was carried out through three companies Prayas Infosolution, Indo Metallimpex, Akinchan Developers and Mangalayatan Projects. Jain allegedly paid money to entry operators of some various shell companies based in Kolkata for house entries by his associates. The entry operators then allegedly rerouted the money in the form of investments after ‘layering through shell companies’ through shares in companies linked to Jain.
