A big disclosure has come about former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, who is facing charges of recovery of 100 crores. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has told the court that Deshmukh had received Rs 4 crore from the bar owners. He transferred this amount to his trust in the form of donation through fake companies.
The ED made this claim during the court appearances of Deshmukh’s PA Sanjeev Palande and PS Kundan Shinde on Saturday. Both were arrested by the ED late on Friday night. Both are on ED remand till July 1. They are accused of helping Deshmukh in money laundering. The investigating agency had also called Deshmukh for questioning on Saturday. But Deshmukh has sought a new date to appear.
ED had raided Deshmukh’s house two days ago
The probe agency had started raids at the Nagpur residence of Anil Deshmukh at 7 am on Friday. It lasted for about 10 hours. It is learned that Deshmukh’s family members were also questioned at his residence in Nagpur. In the evening, ED officials came out of the house with some documents.
This case is related to the allegations of recovery against Deshmukh. Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh, in a letter to state Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray about two and a half months ago, alleged that Anil Deshmukh had given a target of recovery of Rs 100 crore every month to suspended Mumbai Police officer Sachin Vajhe.
In this case, the ED team has also recorded the statements of the owners about 10 to 12 times. After this, the statement of sacked police officer Sachin Wajhe has also been recorded by going to Taloja jail.
