ED summons former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh in money laundering case

The Enforcement Directorate has summoned former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh to appear before the agency this morning in Mumbai. The ED, in a money laundering case, conducted searches yesterday at the residence of Anil Deshmukh in Nagpur and also in Mumbai. The search was conducted in the presence of Central Reserve Police Force personnel. Deshmukh’s personal secretary Sanjeev Palande and personal assistant Kundan Shinde were taken into custody in connection with the charges of money laundering.

The CBI had earlier investigated Deshmukh’s house in the Sachin Waze case and the ED had raided the office and residence of Deshmukh’s close associates in Nagpur. The case pertains to the allegations of corruption levelled by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh against Anil Deshmukh in March this year. The ED had then registered a money laundering case against him and started a probe in connection with the case.
