The Former Home minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh approached a Mumbai court seeking for a regular bail in the 2021 corruption case which was registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) after a enquiry was directed by the court.
The NCP leader has filed a plea just after two days of him getting bail in the money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate based on the FIR any CBI.
The CBI was directed by the Special judge SH Gwalani to respond to the bail application and posted the matter for hearing on October 14.
The bail which has been filed by Deshmukh through advocate Aniket Nikam said that CBI’s entire case rests on the “whims and fancies of the investigative agency.
The bail application states that the credibility of the statements on which the case of the CBI rests is extremely doubtful and the credentials of all such people raise a question mark of serious nature.
The entire case is based on the statement of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh and dismissed Mumbai cop Sachin Waze against whom there is ample evidence available on record that Waze himself was in fact the sole person instrumental in the collection of illegal bribe money from the bar owners.
Anil Deshmukh has contended that the credibility of Waze was of grave concern more so because he had become an approver.
The application also stated that the investigation carried out by CBI do not inspire any confidence and on the contrary expose the premiere instigating agency of the country to have become a mere pawn in the hands of vested interests and acting for extraneous and malafide considerations.
