Mumbai: Former Maharashtra deputy chief minister Chhagan Bhujbal has got bail today after spending two years in jail in connection with a money laundering case.
Bhujbal, who is from the NCP, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in 2016.
Bhujbal’s son and NCP legislator Pankaj and his nephew Sameer are also accused in this case.
According to the probe agency, the Bhujbal family allegedly had conspired along with several others to divert or ‘launder’ kickbacks received by Chhagan Bhujbal, when he was state Public Works Department minister.
The money laundering charges against them relate to the contract for construction of the state guest house- ‘Maharashtra Sadan’ – in Delhi and the Kalina land-grabbing case in Mumbai.
