ED custody of former Maharashtra Minister Anil Deshmukh extended till Nov 15text_fields
A special PMLA court on Friday extended the Enforcement Directorate's custody of former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh till November 15. Deshmukh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate earlier last week in connection with a multi-crore money laundering case.
Though the 71-year-old NCP leader was sent to judicial custody by a special holiday court on November 6, the Bombay High Court set aside the lower court's order and sent Deshmukh bach to ED remand till November 12, the very next day.
The former minister was produced before a special PMLA court on Friday. Judge HS Sathbhai extended his custody till November 15.
