ED arrests Former SDO Jairam Deshpande

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday arrested former sub-divisional officer (SDO) Jairam Deshpande from Mumbai in connection to the alleged Dapoli resort case.

Earlier on Saturday, a Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Court in Mumbai sent Sadanand Kadam, a close aide of Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader and former Maharashtra minister Anil Parab, to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till 15 March in connection with the alleged Dapoli Sai Resort scam.

ED had sought 14 days of custody of Kadam, who was produced before the court on Saturday. ED told the court it issued three summonses to Kadam since he did not appear before the agency. ED said it took Kadam to its office and started recording his statement. The agency told the court that he was giving evasive replies.

The agency said in 2017 Anil Parab wanted to buy land, so he contacted Sadanand Kadam. Kadam allegedly helped Parab buy the land, and the deal was finalized at Rs 1.80 crore. Parab transferred Rs 1 crore through banking and Rs 80 lakh in unaccounted cash through Vibhas Sathe.
