MUMBAI: The Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Monday filed a chargesheet against Nationalist Congress party (NCP) leader and former minister Chhagan Bhujbal and six others in the  Central Library case.

Bhujbal, who is already in custody over his alleged involvement in the Maharashtra sadan scam, was on March 17 sent to judicial custody till March 31 by the special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court.

Bhujbal's money laundering case took a fresh turn last Monday after Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached Girna sugar mill, along with land worth Rs 55 crores, to the  case.

The former Maharashtra deputy chief minister was arrested on March 14 in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam.

The Enforcement Directorate had on February 1 arrested former lawmaker Sameer Bhujbal, nephew of Chhagan Bhujbal, in a money laundering case in Mumbai after the agency conducted multiple searches in connection with the probe against Bhujbals and others.

The Maharashtra ACB had earlier filed two FIRs against the Bhujbals and others under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act ( PMLA) to probe the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.
