The remarks came after a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team questioned Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain's wife in connection with allegations of money laundering.

In April, the CBI had registered a preliminary enquiry against Jain in connection with Rs 4.63 crore of money laundering in 2015-16.

In this issue, Aam Aadmi Party said that central government is doing all these intentionally and BJP is exploiting CBI for its politics.

Early this month, the CBI questioned the minister on charges that he had laundered around Rs 4.6 crore through shell companies.

Jain had denied all allegations levelled against him.

The AAP also said Mr Jain has been targeted because he is making world class Mohalla Clinics across Delhi. It claims that two persons - Sanjay and Suresh - have been working with Jain since 2010 and both used to send hawala money through Calcutta-based hawala racketeers. CBI now raids Minister Jain's residence.

"Central government of BJP is misusing CBI for its vendetta politics".

The AAP leader claimed that the BJP has presented two non-existing persons and despite Jain's request, the probe agency has failed to present them before the Minister. The party in its official Twitter handle said that after CM Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, BJP's CBI raided Jain. "Jain then asked that the remaining three witnesses be also brought before him and be confronted by him, but the income tax department refused to do so".

"But he broke down and confessed within five minutes that Jain had nothing to do with this case", an AAP statement said.
