Khadse's counsel Aabad Ponda sought the court to grant the former state revenue minister interim protection from any coercive action, pending hearing of the plea.
Talking to the media outside his home before leaving for the ED office, Khadse, a former BJP leader who joined the NCP last year, said he will cooperate with the agency.
The central agency on December 26 asked Eknath Khadse, who joined the NCP recently, to appear before it in connection with a land deal of his family in Bhosri area near Pune.
Khadse had been disgruntled for a long time after his resignation, as he claimed that he got a clean chit but the BJP still sidelined him.
On November 15, Khadse's daughter Rohini had said that she had contracted the coronavirus infection.
Pawar is aware that his party’s influence is limited to western Maharashtra only which resulted in the NCP bagging 54 out of the total 288 seats in 2019, the party sources said.
It was told that the former BJP leader has a confidential CD of some BJP leader and that may damage the party.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar himself trashed the reports earlier in the day after Khadse and his daughter Rohini joined the NCP.
Eknath Khadse joins NCP in Mumbai; Union Minister Raosaheb Danve calls him 'not original' BJP worker
Danve's statement comes two days after he praised Khadse for his contribution towards building the BJP in the state and also for his 'long career' in the party.
Khadse had alleged that Damania had filed a molestation complaint against him over his speech and the police had registered a case in that connection on Fadnavis's instructions.
At a press meet, Khadse said that Fadnavis as the erstwhile chief minister had planned many conspiracies against him and was even responsible for the registration of molestation case against him.
Talking about Khadse's move, BJP's state unit chief Chandrakant Patil said, "We were hopeful that Khadse would stay with the party, until I received his resignation today."
Thackeray said Khadse is among the leaders who expanded the BJP's base in parts of the state along with late leaders Pramod Mahajan aind Gopinath Munde.
Khadse has reportedly been sulking since he was made to resign as a minister in the then BJP government in 2016 on allegations of corruption.
Fadnavis, who is in Osmanabad district to assess losses caused to farmers due to heavy rains, refused to make any further comment on the rumours.
