Maharashtra government money laundering case: ED arrests deputy collector Anil Parab
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested Anil Parab, a deputy collector in the Maharashtra government, in connection with a money laundering case.
Parab was arrested after he was summoned for questioning by the ED regarding his alleged involvement in the money laundering case.
The ED had earlier arrested former Maharashtra minister Anil Deshmukh in connection with the same case.
The case involves allegations of bribery and money laundering against Deshmukh, who was the home minister of Maharashtra at the time of the alleged offences.
Parab is believed to have played a key role in helping Deshmukh to launder money and conceal his ill-gotten wealth.
The arrest of Parab has sent shockwaves through the Maharashtra government and raised questions about the involvement of other high-ranking officials in the case.
The ED is continuing its investigation into the case and is expected to make further arrests in the coming days.
