On October 29, the Bombay High Court had refused to quash the ED summons against Deshmukh and directed him to appear before the agency.

The ED was probing Deshmukh's financial transactions as Maharashtra Home Minister after former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh's allegations of corruption against him. In a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Param Bir Singh had accused Mr Deshmukh of interference and using the police to extort up to ₹ 100 crore every month.
