The former home minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh recently posted a video message questioning the value of the properties that have been attached by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). This video message comes after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) looked for the premises of the former minister in a money laundering case.
“My appearance before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) will rely on the outcome of the petition I filed in the Supreme Court,” said Deshmukh. The former home minister further stated that the properties that have been purchased by his son Salil’s company in 2006 cost Rs 2.67 crore, which is of the property costing Rs 4 crore that has been attached by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
“It is mentioned by some media reports that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached assets of Salil costing to Rs 300 crore, which is false,” said the former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.
When asked about the current market value of the properties the real estate broker stated that the current price is Rs 300 crore. “Without reducing the road infrastructure the plot can be used for residential, commercial, and for industrial purposes. The proximity it carries with Navi Mumbai International Airport has added worth in terms of commercial exploitation as FSI, a five-star hotel, and many more.
That is the reason the current market price of the property is more than 300 crores,” stated R. Mishra from Ulwe in Navi Mumbai who is the real estate broker. All the attempts made by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to find the former Home Minister of Maharashtra failed as he and his family members have been untraceable. Deshmukh has recorded the video message from a location no one is aware of.
