ED files chargesheet against former Maha Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, 2 sons

The chargesheet also includes a statement of Deshmukh, former chief secretary of Maharashtra Sitaram Kunte, former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday has named former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh as the main accused in the 7000-page supplementary chargesheet filed in Bombay High Court under the Prevention of Money-laundering Act (PMLA).

The two sons of the former home minister have also been named in the chargesheet. Deshmukh who was arrested on November 1 after hours of questioning by the ED, is currently imprisoned at the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai. The enforcement directorate launched an investigation against Deshmukh after the central agency CBI registered an FIR against him on April 21 on the charges of corruption.

The ED had said that Deshmukh while holding a public office allegedly collected Rs 4.70 crore from various bars and restaurants in Mumbai through police inspector Sachin Waze. Deshmukh resigned from the home minister’s post after a former Mumbai Police top cop Param Bir Singh made corruptions allegations against him in April this year.
