PMLA Court Extends ED Custody Of Anil Deshmukh Till November 15
A special PMLA court in Mumbai has extended the ED custody of former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh till November 15, in connection with the multi-crore money laundering case.
He was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) early last week.
A special holiday court on November 6 had sent the NCP leader to judicial custody after rejecting the ED's plea seeking extension of his remand.
However, a day later, the Bombay High Court set aside the Court's order and sent Deshmukh in ED remand till November 12.
The ED's case is that Deshmukh, while serving as the Home Minister, misused his official position and through dismissed cop, Sachin Waze, collected Rs 4.70 crore from various bars and restaurants in Mumbai.
Besides Deshmukh, the ED has arrested his two aides - Kundan Shinde and Sanjeev Palande - in connection with the case. The duo are currently in judicial custody.
On Friday, the former minister was produced before special PMLA court judge H S Sathbhai, who extended his custody till November 15.
