Probe Agency Moves Court After Maharashtra Ex-Minister Skips Several Summons

Mumbai:

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has moved a court here against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh for failing to appear before the probe agency despite being summoned multiple times in a money laundering case.

The ED filed the plea in a special court yesterday seeking action against Mr Deshmukh under IPC Section 174 (non-attendance in obedience to an order from public servant). The section attracts a simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to one month or fine up to five hundred rupees or both.

The probe agency had issued multiple summonses to Mr Deshmukh in the money laundering case registered against him. However, the NCP leader has failed to appear before it so far.

Two of Mr Deshmukh’s aides – Sanjeev Palande and Kundan Shinde – have been arrested in the case. They are currently in judicial custody.

Besides the duo, the probe agency in its chargesheet filed recently has named dismissed Mumbai police officer Sachin Waze as an accused. However, Mr Deshmukh or his family members have not been made accused in the chargesheet.

The ED launched a probe against Mr Deshmukh and his associates after the CBI filed an FIR against the NCP leader on April 21 after former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh accused him of corruption.

Mr Singh had alleged that Mr Deshmukh asked Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crore from city bars and hotels every month, a charge denied by the former minister.

Mr Deshmukh resigned as a minister in April this year.
