ED raids former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh’s residence | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday performed a search at former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh‘s premises in reference to a cash laundering case, reported information company ANI quoting its sources.
The search is happening at three locations in Nagpur. Earlier within the week on August 2, the NCP chief skipped the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons for questioning.
“Deshmukh has skipped summons and has sent a two-page letter to the agency through his advocate,” an ED official associated to the probe advised information company IANS.
This was the third time Deshmukh skipped ED summons in reference to the case.
The ED had claimed its probe discovered that “Deshmukh, while acting as home minister of Maharashtra, with dishonest intention has received illegal gratification of approximately Rs 4.70 crore in cash from various orchestra bar owners, through (suspended) Sachin Waze, then the assistant police inspector of Mumbai Police.”
Anil Deshmukh has denied any wrongdoing in these situations and his legal professionals have referred to as the ED motion in opposition to him unjustified.
