Before Anil Deshmukh’s arrest, the former Maharashtra home minister was confronted with alleged evidence gathered by the agency, including statements of other accused and witnesses in the case.

The is carrying out an under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in connection with the alleged Rs 100 crore extortion racket.

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh had accused Anil Deshmukh of asking dismissed assistant inspector Sachin Vaze to collect Rs 100 crore from hotels and bars in Mumbai every month, a charge which the then state home minister had consistently denied.

The entire controversy took place after an explosive-laden vehicle was discovered on 25 February this year outside the residence of industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence in Mumbai. During the investigation, the NIA (National Agency) found the involvement of Sachin Vaze and later the Maharashtra Government removed Parambir Singh from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner.

Ironically, his bugbear Param Bir Singh is no saint either. He is accused of botching up the into the mysterious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

In #HongKong, an episode of “The Simpsons” that ridicules #CCP censorship was omitted on Disney+. The archive skips episode 12, where the Simpsons travel to Beijing & criticize the Tiananmen massacre. It's the Communist way: censor, intimidate & destroy.
