“You start with jail food. If not, I’ll think about it”…; Judge of the Special court stated

Anil Deshmukh, a former Maharashtra minister who was arrested in a corruption case earlier this month, was today sentenced to 14 days in judicial detention. His desire for home-cooked meals, however, was denied by the special court. “You start with jail food. If not, I’ll think about it, the judge stated.

The court allowed the 71-year-old to request for a bed considering his health condition.

On November 1, Mr. Deshmukh, the former Maharashtra Home Minister, was detained in connection with a money-laundering investigation. After questioning him for 12 hours at their Mumbai headquarters, the Enforcement Directorate arrested him.

After the Central Bureau of Investigation filed a corruption complaint against Mr Deshmukh in April, the agency began its investigation.

According to the CBI, Mr. Deshmukh abused his position as home minister by collecting Rs. 4.70 crore from city bars and eateries with the help of retired police officer Sachin Waze.

It made headlines after a money laundering case involving former Mumbai police officer Parambir Singh, who was accused of bribery worth 100 crore.
