SP-rank officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation interrogated Anil Deshmukh for 11 hours. Anil Deshmukh is the former Maharashtra Home Minister. The CBI is conducting a preliminary inquiry into the allegations of corruption brought against him. These allegations were made by the former Mumbai Police Commissioner, Param Bir Singh.

In this interrogation, Deshmukh refuted the charges and said those were an attempt to malign the image of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government of the state.

The Questioning that began at 10 am at the Research and Development Organization (DRDO) guest house in Santacruz (East), ended at 9:30 pm when Deshmukh was seen leaving the safe house.

While he has denied all the allegations made against him, yet it is unclear whether or not he will be interrogated again.

Deshmukh resigned from his position after the Bombay High Court directed CBI to probe into the allegations against him.

The CBI has questioned Deshmukh’s two personal assistants (PAs) Sanjeev Palande, Kundan Shinde, former commissioner Param Bir Singh, deputy commissioner police Raju Bhujbal, assistant commissioner of police, Sanjay Patil, former assistant police inspector Sachin Vaze, and his two drivers till now.

Singh, who is a former cop and the Suspended Police Officer Sachin Waze have alleged that the accused has asked them to collect ₹100 crores per month from bars and restaurants, an allegation which the former minister has already denied.

The allegations against Deshmukh were raised after Waze was linked with the security breach near Antilia where an explosive-laden SUV was found.
