The Supreme Court has refused to provide interim protection from arrest to former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh in the alleged money laundering case against him.
Sources say that Deshmukh could face arrest in connection with the ongoing probe against him.
A bench of justices AM Khanwilkar, Krishna Murari and V Ramasubramanian said that the top court is 'not inclined to grant any interim relief' to Deshmukh and added that he could access remedies under the CrPC.
Deshmukh had approached the top court seeking that the cases against him be dropped. Last week, the Bombay High Court had dismissed a PIL filed by Deshmukh.
