Anil Deshmukh’s troubles do not seem to be diminishing. ED and CBI investigations are on against him in the Money Laundering Case and 100 crore vasooli gate case. Last week, a metropolitan magistrate’s court in Mumbai on Friday issued notice against Anil Deshmukh in a money laundering case and directed him to appear before the court by November 16. The ED had moved the court against Deshmukh, saying he did not appear before the agency despite summons. The ED had said that Deshmukh was summoned on four separate occasions since June, but he failed to appear citing various grounds. Today, with a warrant against Anil Deshmukh, the CBI team raided Anil Deshmukh’s house in Nagpur.
