Mumbai, 1st August 2022: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has been sent to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till August 4. He was arrested by the ED on Sunday (July 31) at midnight after a day-long of interrogation. Meanwhile, Sanjay Raut was taken to J.J. hospital for medical examination today (August 1). After that Sanjay Raut was produced in court by ED.
Ashok Mundargi was representing Sanjay Raut. Raut’s lawyer had said that action is being deliberately taken against Sanjay Raut, after the change of power in the state.
When Sanjay Raut was arrested by ED yesterday, his family was very emotional. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray himself went to Sanjay Raut’s house today to encourage the family. After meeting his family, Uddhav Thackeray held a press conference.
Uddhav Thackeray said that the action taken against Sanjay Raut is being done in a very bad manner and told that Shiv Sena is proud of Sanjay Raut’s courage. “The politics of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is to try to trap and eliminate the opposition by doing whatever they want. But times are changing,” Thackeray added further. Uddhav Thackeray said that the state of Congress which has been in power for 60 years should be taken into consideration.
