An ongoing probe by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has revealed that 10 bar owners in Mumbai allegedly paid Rs 4 crore to Maharashtra's former home minister Anil Deshmukh for three months, a report citing the agency sources claimed on June 25.

ED sources who spoke to The Indian Express claimed that the money trail of Rs 4 crore, that was allegedly paid to Deshmukh during his tenure as the minister, has been established. The agency, however, was yet to issue an official statement.

The newspaper claimed that the probing officials have launched fresh searches at Deshmukh's Nagpur residence and three other locations, based on the new findings.

The premises of Deshmukh’s personal assistant Kundan Shinde and personal secretary Sanjeev Palande are also being searched in Mumbai to find evidence related to the alleged cash payments by the bar owners, the report added.
