Court allows Anil Deshmukh to travel outside Mumbai

Yesterday, Special Judge RN Rokade, hearing the money laundering case, in the order passed on Monday said, “It is well settled that the right to travel is a valuable one and an integral part of the right to personal liberty. Considering the reasons mentioned in the application, I am of the considered view that this is a fit case for grant of permission to the applicant to travel outside Greater Mumbai.” 

Deshmukh is an accused in money laundering and corruption cases being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), respectively.

Deshmukh in his plea, filed through advocates Inderpal Singh and Aniket Nikam, said he is a native of Nagpur and an elected representative representing four lakh people of his constituency (Katol in Nagpur).

Former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh in March 2021 alleged that Deshmukh, the then state home minister, had given a target to police officers to collect Rs 100 crore per month from restaurants and bars.

Dismissed policeman Sachin Waze, arrested in the case of an explosives-laden vehicle found near industrialist Mukesh Ambani's house in Mumbai in 2021, had also levelled similar allegations.

The high court in April 2021 directed the CBI to carry out a preliminary enquiry.

The CBI, based on this enquiry, registered an FIR against Deshmukh and others for alleged corruption and misuse of official power.

Deshmukh has denied the allegations.
