Former Maha Minister Anil Deshmukh Gets Bail, Order Then Stayed On ED Appeal

Mumbai (Maharashtra): The Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted bail to former Maharashtra minister Anil Deshmukh in a money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate, however, the order was stayed till October 13 after the ED sought time to challenge the decision in the Supreme Court.


The ED said that it should be given time to challenge the decision in the top court. It sought two weeks’ time from the court to appeal in the apex court, however, the order was stayed till October 13.

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted bail to former Maharashtra minister Anil Deshmukh in a money laundering case with a surety amount of Rs 1 lakh.


The Enforcement Directorate had registered the case against him in November 2021 for allegedly misusing his position as state home minister for collecting Rs 4.70 crore from various bars in Mumbai through some police officers.

Despite being granted bail in ED’s case, Deshmukh will continue to remain in custody in another case of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against him.


The Court on September 28 reserved the order on the bail plea of former Maharashtra minister Anil Deshmukh in a money laundering case.


Earlier on September 26, the Supreme Court directed the Bombay High Court to hear and decide expeditiously on the bail plea of Maharashtra’s former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, who was arrested in connection with a money laundering case.


A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli expressed displeasure that the Bombay High Court has kept the bail application of Deshmukh pending for so many months and asked it to hear the plea of Deshmukh within this week and decide it expeditiously.


The apex court noted that Deshmukh’s bail plea is pending in the High Court since March 21 and observed that keeping bail applications pending for eight months is not in accordance with the jurisprudence of bail.


In its order, the bench said, “Any person who has filed a bail application has a legitimate expectation that his plea will be disposed of at an early date. Keeping an application for bail pending is inconsistent with the Right to Life under Article 21. We issue a direction and permit the petitioner to apply before the judge to whom the case has been assigned tomorrow. The application shall be taken for hearing during the course of this week and decided expeditiously.”


Justice NJ Jamadar of the High Court was hearing the bail plea of Deshmukh.


Deshmukh had sought bail from the High Court in the money laundering case being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate after the Special Court declined his plea.
