The Enforcement Directorate (ED), on Sunday morning, raided the premises of Maharashtra’s former Home Minister Anil Deshmukhs ancestral house in Katol, Nagpur.
This raid happened two days after the ED, on 16 July, attached assets worth Rs 4.20 crores belonging to Deshmukh and his family in connection with a money laundering case.
As per reports, the attached assets included – a residential flat worth Rs 1.54 crore at Mumbai’s Worli, and 25 land parcels valued at Rs 2.67 crore at Dhutum Villages in Uran (Maharashtra’s Raigarh district).
According to ED officials, the raid began at 7:30 am. A team of the ED and CRPF had visited Deshmukh’s Katol residence, where none of his family members were present.
Deshmukh, a senior Nationalist Congress Party leader and MLA from Nagpur’s Katol, was accused of allegedly asking former Mumbai police Commissioner Parambir Singh to collect Rs 100 crore monthly from bars, restaurants and hotels in Mumbai.
A CBI probe was initiated in this case against Deshmukh, which lead to his resignation as Maharashtra’s Home Minister.
Deshmukh had however dismissed the charges against him and said that he was being framed for political gains.
However, ED along with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is investigating the matter; more updates to follow.
