Two men claiming to be Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters hurled paper missiles at Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain from the gallery of the Delhi Assembly, news agency PTI reported on Wednesday. The two reportedly raised corruption allegations against Jain, who is under the CBI scanner for alleged money laundering. Following the incident, AAP MLAs allegedly thrashed the two youth outside the Delhi Assembly.

Soon after the interruption, the security whisked them away even as AAP lawmakers demanded strict action against the two men for violating the sanctity of the House.They were later identified as Rajan Kumar and Jagdeep Rana. In the note found printed inside the paper missiles, the duo have claimed that they were AAP workers and took the step as they were unhappy with the Arvind Kejriwal-led party and
the alleged “corruption cases” against Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain.

Later, Speaker Ram Niwas Goel sent the two to serve one-month jail term for creating a ruckus inside the assembly.

Earlier in June, the CBI examined Satyendar Jain in connection with the allegations of money laundering against him. CBI claimed that Jain was allegedly laundered money to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore, when he was a public servant during 2015-16, through Prayas Info Solutions Private Limited, Akinchan Developers Private Limited and Managalyatan Projects Private Limited. Last week, a CBI team Jain’s residence and questioned his wife Poonam Jain in the case.
