The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today conducted searches at a college linked to former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh in connection with a money laundering case.
According to an official, searches were conducted at the Nagpur Institute Of Technology, located at Mahurzari in Katol tehsil, 20 km from Nagpur. The official informed that a unit of five ED officials from Mumbai reached the institute around 12.30 pm and began the searches under the protection of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.
The ED had conducted searches at Deshmukh’s properties in Nagpur earlier as well in connection with a money laundering case against him.
The ED started its probe after the CBI registered a case of alleged corruption against Deshmukh in connection with the allegations made against him by former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh in March 2021. Deshmukh stepped down as home minister in April.
