NCP leader and former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has got a big relief from the court. The Supreme Court has ordered the return of the confiscated property of Anil Deshmukh. Pune NCP leader Rupali Patil has given this information by posting on Facebook. According to Deshmukh’s lawyer Vipul Agarwal, while issuing the order, the court (ED) was also slapped.
Anil Deshmukh was arrested by the ED under the Special PMLA Act in a money laundering case and a total of 11 properties were seized after raiding his house and offices. After this, Anil Deshmukh was sent to judicial custody. He is currently lodged in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai. Now the court in its order has asked to return all those properties.
After Deshmukh’s arrest, the ED conducted several raids at various places and seized 11 properties. The ED took this action after 180 days. As per the law, the property is not confiscated after 180 days. Therefore, after 180 days, the Supreme Court reprimanded the ED for confiscation of the property. The Supreme Court has also ordered to return the property of Deshmukh’s son and daughter-in-law.
Apart from ED, the CBI is also investigating Anil Deshmukh in the case of recovery of Rs 100 crore.
Sacked police officer Sachin Waje and other police officers were fined Rs. A target of recovery of Rs 100 crore was given. This allegation was made by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh.
Thereafter the matter went to the High Court. The High Court had directed the CBI to investigate. The CBI was still probing Anil Deshmukh’s other money laundering cases. After the money laundering case came to light, the ED came forward for investigation. The ED later arrested Anil Deshmukh under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
