A special PMLA court in Mumbai on Thursday extended the ED custody of two aides of former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh till July 6 in connection with a money laundering case against the NCP leader.

The case is related to charges of bribery against Deshmukh invloving Rs 100 crore.

Deshmukh's personal secretary Sanjeev Palande and personal assistant Kundan Shinde were arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on June 26. The duo were booked under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). Prior to their arrest, the ED had carried out raids against them and Deshmukh in Mumbai and Nagpur. 

They were produced before the special PMLA court here on Thursday after the end of their earlier remand.

The court extended their remand to the ED till July 6 for further probe into the case.

The central agency had earlier told the court that the duo was allegedly instrumental in assisting Deshmukh in money laundering.

The ED's case against Deshmukh and others was made out after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) first carried out a preliminary enquiry followed by a regular case being filed on the orders of the Bombay High Court.

The court had asked the CBI to look into the allegations of bribery made against Deshmukh by former Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh.

Deshmukh, who resigned as the state home minister in April this year following the allegations, has denied any wrongdoing.
