Former Maharashtra Home Minister gets arrested by ED in money laundering case.

Mumbai: EX Home Minister of Maharashtra, Anil Deshmukh was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday, by the Enforcement Directorate. He was arrested because he had connections with the alleged Rs 100 Crore extortion and money laundering case.  According to the ED official, he was arrested after a long 12 hours of questioning, at the Ballard Estate office. Deshmukh had appeared before the agency as he was called upon to record his statement around three days later after the Bombay High Court had rejected his application regarding the agency’s summons in the money laundering case that was going on against him. 

He had been evaded the questioning sessions from the ED for several months, and with that even exhausted the legal remedies. In the past few months, the ED has tried to conduct several raids to seek him out but in vain. The ED officials were also surprised by the move that Deshmukh had appeared in front of the office along with his advocate. After his presentation in the ED office, the process of investigation began and the officer started questioning him just after his arrival. For his questioning session, even the agency’s head director arrived from Delhi to join on with the processes. 

Before the arrest of Deshmukh, prior to that, the ED had arrested Deshmukh’s private secretary Sanjeev Palande and personal assistant Kundan Shinde for allegedly helping Deshmukh and his son Hrishikesh with money laundering. The ED said Deshmukh through Shinde, had collected Rs 4.7 crore from (now-dismissed) assistant police inspector Sachin Waze in cash. Waze was then heading the CIU branch of Mumbai police and had collected the money from orchestra bar owners of Mumbai illegally for Deshmukh.

After the appearance of Deshmukh, before ED, his team had released a pre-recorded video containing a message in it. In that video, Deshmukh is heard saying that the former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bhir Singh, had made up false allegations against him and has now fled the country. In the video, Deshmukh said, “I received ED summons, and the media wrongly reported that I wasn’t cooperating with the probe. Each time after ED summons, I replied to them stating my petition was pending before the HC and SC, after its outcome I would present myself before the ED. Me, and my family, and our staff cooperated with ED during the probe”.
