BJP leader Kirit Somaiya in a Tweet claimed, "Next will be #AnilParab.”

The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday arrested former Maharashtra Minister and NCP leader Anil Deshmukh after over 12 hours of questioning in an extortion and money-laundering case.
 
Deshmukh, who was in hiding, was arrested under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). As per the officials, the NCP leader was evasive during the interrogation.
 
The former minister had skipped at least five summons by the agency and was untraceable. Reportedly, a team of ED officials including its additional director flew in from Delhi to record the statement of Deshmukh, earlier today.
 
The NCP leader will be produced before a local court today.
 
Meanwhile, Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leader Kirit Somaiya in a Tweet claimed, “At last Home Minister #AnilDeshmukh is arrested by ED. More than ₹100 Crores Non-Transparent Transactions. Cash Trail. Next will be #AnilParab.”
 
While speaking with Republic TV, Somaiya said that the first one to be arrested was Jitendra Awhad, now is Anil Deshmukh and next in line will be Shiv Sena leader and Maharashtra Transport Minister Anil Parab.
