Corrigendum: In one of the questions during Mr Harish Salve’s interview, interviewer mistakenly quoted former Chief Justice of India Justice Sharad Bobde, saying, “Constitution is under threat.” Justice Bobde never made this remark. We sincerely apologise to Justice Bobde and the audience for committing this mistake. Inconvenience caused is regretted!

Special Court grants bail to ex-Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh in money laundering case

Special Court granted bail to former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh's son Hrishikesh Deshmukh on Monday. 

Anil Deshmukh

In a major development, Special Court granted bail to former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh on Monday in an alleged money laundering case. Hrishikesh, who was arraigned as an accused in the chargesheet, was granted bail after a special court designated to hear cases related to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) recorded his appearance.

He had filed an application through his advocate Aniket Nikam after appearing before the court and requesting the same to accept his appearance and grant him bail.

Hrishikesh also pointed out that the accusations in the ED’s case were confined to the alleged acts of omission and commission by his father in his capacity as the former home minister from January 2020 to April 2021. The plea also cited that the former home minister had already been granted bail in the case by the Bombay High Court. 

The court had in February this year issued summons to Hrishikesh after ED submitted its complaint (chargesheet) in the case.

Bombay High Court granted bail to NCP leader Anil Deshmukh in October this year in the same case. While Deshmukh had secured the bail in the ED case, he remains in custody in connection with the CBI case registered against him in April last year.
