Anil Deshmukh Booked by ED on Money Laundering Charges

ED files a case against Anil Deshmukh…get the details…

Wednesday, 12th May 2021

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a case against former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh, days after the Central Bureau of Investigation filed an FIR against him on charges of money laundering.

The ED case against the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has been filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

According to sources, an enforcement case information report (ECIR) had been filed by the ED against Deshmukh after allegations were made by former police chief of Mumbai Param Bir Singh of the minister accepting bribery and on the basis of details logged in the corruption case that has been filed by the CBI on April 24.

The CBI is set to probe deeper into Deshmukh’s financial transactions.

As a result of this, Deshmukh could be summoned for an interrogation by the ED.

Congress leaders as well as the NCP have stated that this is a case of “political revenge” after the filing of the ECIR. As per the parties, the step against Anil Deshmukh is a conscious effort to deflect the current scrutiny on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his supposed mismanagement of the Covid-19 situation in the country.

The NCP also claimed that the BJP endeavours to slander the party and the Maha Vikas Aghadi.

NCP leader Nawab Malik said in a statement, “Right from Singh’s allegations to the filing of the case by the ED, it is all politically motivated and aimed at defaming him (Deshmukh) by misusing power. It is clear that the BJP is playing politics using the CBI, ED and other Central agencies…Whatever the legal aspects, Deshmukh ji will cooperate in the probe.”

The central investigative body had earlier on filed a case of corruption and misuse of power against the NCP leader. According to them, Deshmukh along with some unidentified individuals have abused the power of their position.

After receiving a directive by the Bombay High Court for a preliminary probe, the CBI reported that Deshmukh was privy to the information that all ‘sensational and important cases of the police’ were being controlled by a police office by the name of Sachin Waze, whose reputation was also smeared. They even conducted searches in Deshmukh’s residences in Nagpur, Mumbai, Thane and Pune.
