Former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh was on Monday sent to 14-day judicial custody by a special court Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) under various sections of PMLA on November 1.
A holiday court on November 6 had sent Deshmukh (71) to judicial custody for 14 days after rejecting the ED’s plea seeking an extension of remand.
Former Mumbai Police commissioner Param Bir Singh had levelled extortion and money laundering allegations against him.
Singh had alleged that Deshmukh was involved in several wrongdoings, including, asking suspended police officer Sachin Waze to collect ₹100 crore from bars and restaurants in Mumbai.
