Pune, 26th May 2022: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has taken major action against Maharashtra minister and Shiv Sena leader Anil Parab today.
The ED has raided seven locations of Parab in Pune and Mumbai as there is an allegation against him of taking bribes of crores. The ED has also registered a case of money laundering against him.
At the same time, the agency is questioning the minister and his statement is being recorded.
Maharashtra Deputy CM Ajit Pawar’s statement has come to the fore after the ED raid on Anil Parab’s hideouts. He said that the central investigative agencies have the right to conduct raids, but they should not misuse their powers.
He said, “Don’t know why this action has been taken against Minister of State Anil Parab. I only want to say that the action should be done in a transparent manner.”
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said, “We are in support of Anil Parab. BJP is using central government agencies against the opposition. This is just a conspiracy to defame the Maharashtra government.”
This action of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been taken on the allegation of taking a bribe of Rs one crore for the purchase and sale of land. A case is also registered against Parab in 2019. It is alleged that the land was sold to a Mumbai-based cable operator Sadanand Kadam for Rs 1.10 crore in 2020.
The name of Shiv Sena leader Anil Parab also came in the Ambani bomb threat case. The arrested former API of Mumbai Police Sachin Waje had leveled many allegations against him. The biggest allegation on Parab was that he used to take bribes of crores while in the post of minister. He is also accused of taking bribes in transfer-posting.
