In a yet another breaking development, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a lookout notice against the former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh linked to the money laundering case.
With the lookout notice issued, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader cannot leave the country.
According to previous reports, the former minister has evaded five summons issued by ED to appear before it and cooperate in the investigation. In an attempt to quash summons against Deshmukh, his lawyers had approached the Bombay High Court.
The ED had registered a money laundering case against Deshmukh in May based on an FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
