The Mumbai Police has registered a case against 100 persons including NCP leaders after they crowded outside Arthur Road jail to welcome former state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Deshmukh was released on bail on December 28 after stay on it ended on December 27. The former minister had been in jail since November 2021 after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested him in an alleged money laundering case. He was released after a holiday court issued a release memo paving the way for his release from the prison.

He also expressed gratitude towards those who supported him. He was received by Jayant Patil, Ajit Pawar, Supriya Sule and hundreds of NCP workers.

Deshmukh gets bail in CBI case

The NCP leader had secured bail from the Bombay High Court on Dec 12 in the case. The order had been stayed from getting effective for 10 days so that the CBI could approach the apex court to challenge the order. The stay was extended on Dec 21 till Dec 27.

On Tuesday, the agency had again approached the HC for a three-day extension of stay as it had not got a hearing before the top court as it was closed for vacation. The HC had refused this as while granting the extension of Dec 21, the HC bench had stated that under no circumstances a further extension would be entertained. 

On Wednesday, a holiday court at sessions verified sureties appearing for Deshmukh and then issued a release memo. His advocates Inderpal Singh and Aniket Nikam submitted the release order to the jail authorities in Arthur Road prison.
