A special court in Mumbai rejected the bail plea of former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh in money laundering case on Tuesday. Deshmukh had filed a petition seeking default bail under section 167(2) of the IPC. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) opposed the bail petition of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader.

Anil Deshmukh is currently lodged in Arthur Road Jail. The Former Maharashtra Home Minister was arrested by the ED on November 1, last year in connection with the alleged Rs 100-crore extortion and money laundering case.

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh had accused Anil Deshmukh of asking dismissed assistant inspector Sachin Vaze to collect Rs 100 crore from hotels and bars in Mumbai every month. The federal probe agency will record the statement of Deshmukh under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection with the criminal investigation being carried out by it in the alleged Rs 100 crore bribery-cum-extortion racket in the Maharashtra Police establishment.

It registered a case against Deshmukh and others based on a corruption case filed against him by the Central Bureau of Investigation. (ANI)
