High Court Sends Former Maharashtra’s Home Minister To ED Custody Till 12 Nov

At a special sitting held on Sunday, the Bombay High Court set aside the order of the Mumbai Sessions Court which had rejected a plea by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to extend custody of the former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh in the money laundering case against him.

Vacation judge Justice Madhav Jamdar extended Deshmukh’s ED custody till November 12, 2021.

Earlier, Additional Sessions Judge PR Sitre rejected ED’s plea for extension of custody and remanded Deshmukh to judicial custody for 14 days.

In its 32-page revision application, the ED submitted that Deshmukh refused to co-operate during the interrogation and was giving evasive replies to the questions put by the investigating officer.

Hence, ED sought further remand of 9 days considering the magnitude of the fraud and seriousness of the issues involved.

ED contended that investigation in money laundering cases cannot be expected to be completed within a short span of time.
