ED carries out searches at former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh premises

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday carried out searches at the premises of former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh in connection with an alleged money laundering case.

The raids took place at his residences in Nagpur and Mumbai.

BJP leader Kirit Somaiya, while taking a dig at the former home minister, said that he will be in jail in a few days.

“ED raided Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s Vasooli Minister Anil Deshmukh residence. I am sure in few days he will be in Jail. Another VASOOLI Minister Anil Parab will follow Anil Deshmukh,” Somaiya tweeted.

Earlier. Deshmukh resigned from the post of Maharashtra Home Minister after former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh wrote a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray levelling allegations of corruption against Deshmukh.
