The Enforcement Directorate filed the first Chargesheet on Monday against alleged accused Sanjeev Palande and Kundan Shinde, Assistant and Personal Secretary of Maharashtra Ex-Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

The two were detained in a Money Laundering Case against Anil Deshmukh and other accomplices. They were arrested as the Enforcement Directorate investigated and found out that they accepted the extorted money and transferred it to Anil Deshmukh.

The Enforcement Directorate is investigating a Rs 100 Crore Money Laundering and Extortion Case contra Anil Deshmukh.

Anil Deshmukh stated that he will be appearing before the Enforcement Directorate post the completion of the Legal process.

Deshmukh in a statement mentioned that “The legal process has begun and I will appear before the ED after the legal process is completed. I will cooperate with the ED. I have always followed high standards in my entire Social-Political life”.

Deshmukh who had to resign from his job as Home Minister of Maharashtra post the extortion case came to light has been constantly denying all the charges levied against him and requested the agency to record all his statements through electronic medium until appropriate orders were passed by the Courts.

On March 20, Ex- Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh had written a letter to Chief Minister of Maharashtra Udhav Thackerey, the letter alleged that Anil Deshmukh had ordered Sachin Vaze and ACP Sanjay Patil to extort Rs 100 Crore within a month from bars and restaurants.
