Hrishikesh Deshmukh, son of Former State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on November 4, 2021, to appear at the ED office for questioning on November 5, 2021. 

This came in light of the Money Laundering Case in which his Father has been Arrested and is being held in the Agency’s Custody until November 6. 

According to the ED, dismissed Police Inspector Sachin Vaze reportedly collected 4.7 crores from orchestra bar owners in Mumbai for “smooth bar functioning” and handed the money to Deshmukh’s personal assistant Sanjeev Palande, who then transferred it to someone in Nagpur. 

According to ED officers, using hawala channels the money was routed to the Delhi-based Surendra Kumar Jain and Virendra Jain, who ran Fraudulent businesses. 

The Jain brothers are alleged to have diverted the funds to Shri Sai Shikshan Sansthan, a Nagpur-based foundation run by the Deshmukh family. 

Officials from the ED believe the Jain brothers were operating on Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh’s Orders, and they want to record his statement for the same.

An ED official said the Agency intends to confront him with his father and interview them both together, adding that after interrogating him, the Agency would determine whether or not to bring him under Arrest. 

Hrishikesh Deshmukh had been summoned by the Agency twice previously, but he, like his father, failed to appear before the federal Agency authorized to Investigate Money Laundering.
