Corruption Case: Special CBI Court Rejects Anil Deshmukh’s Plea Seeking Default Bail


New Delhi: A special Central Bureau of Investigation court on Monday rejected the bail plea of former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh with a corruption case registered in April 2021.

Special judge SH Gwalani rejected the plea filed by the 73-year-old Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader through his counsel, advocate Aniket Nikam.

Deshmukh, who was arrested by the CBI on April 6, approached the special court for a default bail, claiming that the central agency failed to file a complete charge sheet, as contemplated under Section 173(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, against him in stipulated time, and hence he was entitled to default bail.

The central agency filed the charge sheet on June 2,  before the stipulated period of 60 days ended, but Deshmukh had claimed that it was incomplete.
