The ED had challenged the bail granted to Anil Deshmukh from the Bombay High Court in the Supreme Court. A bench, headed by Justice DY Chandrachud, refused to interfere with the October 4 order of the Bombay high court that had granted bail to the NCP leader who was arrested in a PMLA case.

Let tell you that Anil Deshmukh was the Home Minister in the Maharashtra government. But since 2021 he is in jail. A case is going on against him in a case related to money laundering. The high court had said the bail order would be effective from October 13 to enable the ED to file an appeal before the Supreme Court.

Last year, former Mumbai Police commissioner Parambir Singh had alleged that Anil Deshmukh, when he was Maharashtra’s home minister, had ordered API Sachin Waje to recover Rs 100 crore per month from the orchestra bar. CBI is investigating this matter. Later ED also started its investigation.

The ED found in the investigation that Deshmukh misused his position while being the Home Minister and recovered Rs 4.70 crore from the Orchestra Bar in Mumbai. Later this money was transferred by his son Hrishikesh Deshmukh in the form of cash to a shell company in Delhi. After that the same amount was received as donation to Sri Sai Educational Institution. This organization is run by the Deshmukh family.
