After skipping four summons, Maharashtra’s former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh today arrived at the Enforcement Directorate office in Mumbai for questioning in a money laundering case against him.
Mr Deshmukh, who had stepped down earlier this year from his post amid row over the bribery allegations against him, was refused relief by the Bombay High Court on Friday as he appealed for the cancellation of the summons.
He was accused of corruption by Mumbai’s ex top cop Param Bir Singh. The former top cop is also missing and a lookout notice has already been issued against him. He also faces allegations of extortion and several cases have been filed against him.
Four summons had been issued to Mr Deshmukh by the central probe agency but he had not appeared until now.
