The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has once again summoned former Maharashtra Home Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Anil Deshmukh for questioning on July 5 in connection with the alleged bribery charges. This is the third summon to Deshmukh in a week.
An ED source related to probe said that the financial probe agency has summoned Deshmukh to record his statement on July 5.
Deshmukh had earlier skipped two summons of the ED in the case.
On June 29, Deshmukh skipped the second summon citing Covid pandemic and said that he was ready to join the probe through any “video or audio” medium.
Deshmukh had skipped the ED’s first summons last week also following searches at his residence in Nagpur. He had sought more time to appear before the financial probe agency.
The NCP leader also said that he would furnish all information and documents sought by the ED after the agency provided him a copy of the Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) filed by it in the case. He further mentioned that the ED summons “do not clarify” the purpose of his personal appearance before it.
On June 26, the ED arrested Deshmukh’s personal secretary Sanjeev Palande and personal assistant Kundan Shinde in connection with an alleged ‘hafta’ case. In its remand copy of the two officials of Deshmukh, the ED said that over Rs 4 crore collected from bar owners between December 2020 and February 2021 was routed to Deshmukh’s charitable trust in Nagpur, through four shell companies in Delhi.
Deshmukh (72), is facing an ED investigation on the basis of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) case as the fallout of the allegations made in a letter penned by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, who is now the Commandant-General of Home Guards.
Singh had alleged in his letter to chief minister Uddhav Thackeray in March that Deshmukh had fixed a collection target of Rs 100 crore per month for sacked assistant police inspector Sachin Vaze, who was the then head of the Crime Intelligence Unit of the elite Crime Branch-CID of the Mumbai Police. Thereafter, Singh had approached the Supreme Court which directed him to go to Bombay High Court where the CBI was asked to conduct a preliminary enquiry.
Meanwhile, Vaze was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for the twin cases of planting of an SUV Scorpio with 20 gelatin sticks and a threat note near Antilia, the home of Reliance Industries Ltd Chairman Mukesh Ambani, followed by the murder of Thane-based owner of the SUV, Mansukh Hiran.

RPG Attack On Punjab Police Intelligence Headquarters In Mohali Was To Assassinate Sidhu Moosewala, Say Sources
New Delhi, September 30: An RPG that targeted the Punjab Police’s Intelligence Headquarters in Mohali last year was actually intended for singer and rapper Sidhu Moosewala, who was shot dead in May 2022, top sources in the Delhi Police revealed. The sources said the perpetrators altered their plan, fearing a higher casualty count if the attack occurred during a gathering or meeting.
The RPG was supplied by Khalistani terrorist Harwinder Singh Sandhu
“The RPG was supplied by Khalistani terrorist Harwinder Singh Sandhu, alias Rinda and it was originally meant to be used to assassinate Sidhu Moosewala when he was at a public rally or event,”.
However, a shift in plans occurred, and the alleged gangsters and terrorists opted to target the Mohali headquarters instead in October 2022. This revelation was brought to light during an interrogation with incarcerated gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.
The RPG was illicitly smuggled into India through the Pakistan border
According to the police sources, the RPG was illicitly smuggled into India through the Pakistan border, implicating the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Rinda had reportedly enlisted members of Bishnoi’s gang to carry out the operation.
Further investigation uncovered that Canada-based fugitive terrorist Lakhbir Singh Landa had collaborated with Rinda, sharing manpower, logistics, and resources and he was also the second in command.
Rinda had previously been linked to a grenade attack
Rinda had previously been linked to a grenade attack at the Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) office in Nawanshahr, Punjab, as well as the arrest of four suspected terrorists with ties to Pakistan in Haryana’s Karnal earlier in the same year.
The RPG attack in Mohali on May 9, 2022, was revealed as a conspiracy orchestrated by the Babbar Khalsa International (BKI), with the support of the ISI and local gangsters.
The attackers were apprehended by the Delhi Police
The attackers, identified as Deepak from Surakhpur village in Haryana and a juvenile accomplice, were apprehended by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police five months after the incident. It was established that Rinda masterminded the attack.
Punjab Police successfully apprehended the main accused, Charat Singh, a key operative and associate of Lakhbir Singh Landa, in a joint operation with central agencies and the ATS in Maharashtra. Landa, originally from Tarn Taran district in Punjab, had relocated to Canada in 2017 due to police pressure.
