Anil Deshmukh resigns from his post of Maharastra Home Minister

Anil Deshmukh resigned from his post of Maharastra Home Minister on 5th April 2021.  This happened after the High court of Bombay asked CBI to do a preliminary investigation of the allegations that Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh raised.

In a resignation letter, Anil Deshmukh said, "Bombay High Court in a petition filed by Advocate Jayashri Patil has directed the CBI to conduct a preliminary investigation. As a result, it is not morally correct for me to continue as the state's Home Minister. I have therefore decided to resign."
