The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has now filed an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. The ECIR has been filed under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection with the corruption charges being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

The CBI probe was initiated upon directions from the Bombay High Court. The matter related to bribery allegations made by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh against Deshmukh in a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. In the letter dated March 20, Singh had said that Deshmukh had instructed the now suspended Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Waze to collect Rs 100 crores each month as bribes from bars and restaurants.

Singh had been shunted out in the immediate aftermath of an explosives-laden vehicle being found outside the home of businessman Mukesh Ambani. Waze is being investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for his alleged role in the case and also the murder of businessman Mansukh Hiran.
