Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday registered a case of money laundering against former home minister and other unknown persons, based on a probe recently initiated by the CBI into allegations of corruption against him, sources said.

The case comes about after the CBI first carried out a preliminary enquiry, followed by filing a regular case, on the orders of the Bombay High Court that asked it to look into the allegations of bribery made against Deshmukh by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh. (UNI)
