Mumbai: Former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh released from Mumbai jail after a year. Shortly before, the order of release was approved by the court. He got the release memo from the Bombay Sessions Court. Anil Deshmukh’s lawyer Ed Inderpal Singh reached Arthur Road Jail from Mumbai Sessions Court with the release order letter.
Talking to the media after coming out of jail, he said that he has full faith in India’s judicial system. He was implicated under the spirit of revenge. Anil Deshmukh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in November 2021. The agency had claimed that he misused his position as the state home minister and collected Rs 4.70 crore from various bars in Mumbai through some police officers.
Earlier, the Bombay High Court refused to extend the stay on the order granting bail to former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh in a corruption case registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Justice M.S. Karnik had granted bail to the 73-year-old Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader on December 12, but the CBI sought time to challenge it in the Supreme Court and the court stayed the order for 10 days.
The investigating agency moved the court, but its appeal would be heard only in January 2023, as the court is on winter break. The high court had last week extended the stay on the bail order till December 27 on the request of the CBI. On Tuesday, the investigating agency had requested to extend the ban once more.
