More information about the unethical activity of Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Sanjay Jain is coming out. Sanjay Jain also appeared for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against the NDTV in the First Information Report (FIR) on ICICI Bank loan fraud, while hushing up the fact that a few years ago that he had appeared for NDTV supporting the ICICI Bank Loans. Yesterday Team PGurus exposed Sanjay Jain hushing up his clash of Interest with Income Tax in the NDTV case.
…when the Law Ministry and Bar Council will take action against this unscrupulous activity of Sanjay Jain?
This issue of representing CBI in the same matter while hushing up the fact that he had appeared for NDTV on the same ICICI Bank fraud case is far more serious. On July 6, 2017, Sanjay Jain as ASG appeared for CBI in Delhi High Court on the petition filed by NDTV and Prannoy Roy’s shell company RRPR Holdings for quashing the FIR registered for ICICI Bank loan fraud case. What is shocking is that on December 7, 2011, the same Sanjay Jain as Advocate appeared in Delhi High Court for NDTV arguing that the controversial ICICI Bank loan is a genuine one!
He had appeared for NDTV in the case against Sunday Guardian and its then Editor M J Akbar, now Union Minister for exposing the ICICI Bank loan fraud. Recently as ASG, Sanjay also appeared for Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in their case against NDTV.
This is totally unprofessional and unethical on the part of an Advocate. Former Attorney General G E Vahanvati had recused himself from all 2G Scam related cases as he had supported Telecom Minister A Raja’s dubious 2G allocation. Former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi also avoided appearing in 2G Scam related cases as earlier as an Advocate he had appeared in courts for many 2G Scam accused like Shahid Balwa and Reliance Telecom employees. This is a basic etiquette of all advocates. Here Sanjay Jain has ditched his new clients CBI, Income Tax and SEBI, hushing up the fact that he was Advocate of NDTV earlier.
The question is when the Law Ministry and Bar Council will take action against this unscrupulous activity of Sanjay Jain? Will CBI and Income Tax and SEBI continue with Sanjay Jain in the NDTV cases or remove him immediately?
Published below are Delhi HC orders showing Sanjay Jain appearing for CBI in 2017 and appearing for NDTV in 2011 in the ICICI Bank loan cases.
