The special courts here on Monday allowed former Maharashtra minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Anil Deshmukh’s plea to travel to Nagpur and New Delhi for four weeks. Deshmukh is an accused in money laundering and corruption cases being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) respectively.
The NCP leader is currently out on bail. One of his bail conditions was to not leave the city without the permission of the special courts, presiding over the ED and CBI cases. Deshmukh’s plea for visiting Nagpur and New Delhi was allowed by both the courts.
