The money, through companies which are on paper only, was then "deposited in the account of Shri Sai Shikshan Sanstha, owned by Deshmukh," the court said.
The focus of the investigation was a Rs 4.18 crore donation allegedly received by the Shri Sai Shikshan Sanstha, sources said.
The probe agency had issued multiple summonses to former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh in the money laundering case registered against him by it.
Anil Deshmukh had said that Param Bir Singh made the allegations against him after he was removed from the post of Mumbai Police Commissioner.
Waze, in his statement claimed that Deshmukh, who was then the home minister, and Transport Minister Parab were not happy with the transfer order issued by Commissioner Param Bir Singh.

Palande was arrested on June 26 this year and is being investigated under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Waze's statement is part of a charge-sheet recently filed by the ED against Deshmukh's personal secretary Sanjeev Palande and personal assistant Kundan Shinde in an alleged money laundering case.
The CBI had registered a case against its sub-inspector Tiwari, Nagpur-based advocate Daga and others on various allegations, including illegal gratification.
The court said that the objection raised by the HC registry department that the issues raised in the plea ought to be heard by a division bench is 'correct'.
Deshmukh had last week filed the petition seeking to quash the five summons issued by the ED.
The commission had issued summons to Param Bir Singh multiple times to appear before it, but he failed to do so, hence, the panel issued a bailable warrant against him, a government lawyer said.
Fadnavis said he has come to know from media reports that the ED has issued a lookout notice against NCP leader Deshmukh in connection with a money laundering case.
The move comes as the Supreme Court had refused to offer Deshmukh interim relief from coercive action in the lawsuit last month.
