Anil Deshmukh remands in judicial custody in connection with money laundering case

Former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh was remanded in judicial custody for 14 days by a special PMLA court here on Monday in connection with a multi-crore money laundering case.

After interrogation in the case, Deshmukh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on November 1 under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). On Tuesday, the NCP leader was brought before special judge M J Deshpande, who remanded him in judicial custody after his ED detention ended. After the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a FIR against Deshmukh and his associates on April 21 this year on charges of corruption and misuse of public position, the ED launched an investigation into him and his collaborators.

Deshmukh and others were charged with money laundering after the CBI charged him in a corruption case involving charges of at least Rs 100 crore in bribery levelled by former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh. According to the ED, Deshmukh used his official position as home minister to collect Rs 4.70 crore from various bars and eateries in Mumbai through discharged police officer Sachin Waze.
