In a corruption case filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI), the Bombay High Court granted bail to former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. It was postponed for ten days because the CBI has stated that it will appeal to the Supreme Court.

Money laundering case was registered against him by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on October 4. Mr. Anil Deshmukh, requested bail in the case as soon as the Bombay High Court granted him bail.

But his application was denied by a special court.

In March 2021, senior IPS officer Param Bir Singh claimed that, Mr. Anil Deshmukh, had set a target for police officers to collect 100 crore per month from Mumbai bars and restaurants.

The ED, which is investigating the case’s income & expenses, has claimed that while serving as the state Home Minister, he collected 4.70 crore from various Mumbai bars and restaurants through police officer Sachin Waze.

Initially, on November 18, a special court in Mumbai granted bail to rejected Sachin Waze in the case involving Mr. Deshmukh.
