Former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh, after more than 12 hours of questioning, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on the intervening night of Monday-1 November and Tuesday-2 November.
The arrest comes in connection with a money laundering case registered against him.
On Monday, Deshmukh had appeared for questioning before the ED after skipping several summonses. He is slated to oppose his remand before the court on Tuesday.
In a self-made video on Monday, Deshmukh had said, “Today I have presented myself before the Enforcement Directorate. Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh made false allegations against me. Where is he today? As per media reports, he has left the country.”
