The Supreme Court on Monday granted liberty to Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Anil Deshmukh to mention his bail plea before Justice NJ Jamadar of Bombay High Court tomorrow for early hearing [Anil Deshmukh vs CBI]..A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hima Kolhi expressed displeasure at the pendency of the plea and directed the High Court judge to take it up during the course of the week and to dispose of it expeditiously."Keeping application for bail pending for 8 months is not consistent with the basic principles of the right under Article 21 of the Constitution...We permit the petitioner to mention the plea before learned judge tomorrow. It should be disposed during the course of this week," the apex court said..The Court also noted that it had passed a similar order in May which was not implemented."Similar order was passed on May 31 . It has remained to be implemented. We expect this time around, the order of the court shall be duly attended to," it stated..Deshmukh and his associates are being investigated for alleged corruption between 2019 and 2021.Based on the findings of the preliminary investigation into a complaint by Dr. Jaishri Patil, the CBI had charged Deshmukh and unknown others.The inquiry was launched after the Bombay High Court issued a direction to that effect on April 5, 2021, in response to a petition filed by Param Bir Singh, former Commissioner of Mumbai Police.Deshmukh was named in the FIR after an investigation, along with personal secretary Sanjeev Palande, personal assistant Kundan Shinde, and dismissed Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze, whose names were later added.During the 8 month pendency, Justices Revati Mohite Dere, PD Naik, Bharati Dangre and Prithviraj K Chavan of Bombay High Court recused themselves from hearing the former minister's bail application..Senior advocates Kapil Sibal and Vikram Chadhari appeared for Deshmukh.
