Under CBI lens, 6 firms owned by Maharashtra former minister Anil Deshmukh's sons
A Kolkata-based company is among over half-a-dozen firms owned by the two sons of Anil Deshmukh, former home minister of Maharashtra, that have come under the scanner of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), sources have told The Indian Express.
The Kolkata firm has been operating from an address that's a known hotspot of shell companies, the sources added.
The CBI is investigating Deshmukh for corruption and alleged 'attempt to obtain undue advantage for improper and dishonest performance of the public duty'. The agency is also probing Deshmukh for exercising 'undue influence' over transfers, postings of police officials in the state and influencing the performance of officials as alleged by former Mumbai Police commissioner Parambir Singh.
