Mumbai : For a fresh trouble to former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh in alleged money laundering case the Enforcement Directorate(ED) has moved a plea in a mumbai court for his non appearance before the central agency.
The agency filed the plea in a special court on Friday claiming that despite being summoned multiple times in alleged money laundering case Deshmukh failed to appear.
In the plea agency sought action against Deshmukh under IPC section 174 (non-attendance in obedience to an order from public servant).
The section attracts a simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to one month, or fine up to five hundred rupees or both.
The probe agency had issued multiple summonses to Deshmukh in the money laundering case registered against him by it. However, the NCP leader has failed to appear before it so far.
