The Bombay High Court remanded Maharashtra’s former Chief Minister (CM) Anil Deshmukh to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in money laundering case.

The Court set aside a Special Court’s Order that remanded Anil Deshmukh to Judicial Custody for 14 days. A Bench of Justice Madhav Jamdar was hearing an application that was filed by ED and it challenged the Special Court’s Order on the basis that it was against the principle of Natural Justice.

Anil Deshmukh got arrested by ED on 1st November after 12 hours of questioning related to a multi-crore money laundering case.

Anil Deshmukh was produced before a Special Holiday Court. However, ED sought custody further, but the Court refused and sent him to Judicial Custody till November 12th.

The ED initiated a screening against Anil Deshmukh and his Associates. The ED earlier arrested two people in the case – Sanjeev Palande and Kundan Shinde.

After the CBI filed an FIR against NCP leader Deshmukh on April 21 on accusations of corruption and misuse of public posts, the ED launched an investigation against him and his associates.
