Anil Deshmukh’s bail plea rejected in CBI case

Mumbai: A special CBI court in Mumbai on Friday rejected a bail petition of former Maharashtra home minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Anil Deshmukh in an alleged corruption case.

The case had been registered against him by the probe agency in April 2021. He has been charged with asking police officers in Mumbai to extort Rs 100 crores from bar owners each month.

Earlier this month, Deshmukh was granted bail by the Bombay High Court in the money-laundering case filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

With his bail being rejected, the 71-year-old will continue to remain in jail.

According to the Indian Express report, he was arrested in November last year by the ED and subsequently by the CBI on allegations that it was on his instructions, when he was state Home Minister in the MVA government that bribes were collected by dismissed cop Sachin Waze from bar owners.

The ED claimed that Deshmukh abused his authority as the state’s home minister by using some police officials to collect Rs 4.70 crore from several Mumbai bars.
