Kirit said “Sending Gupta on leave is nothing but window dressing.
Earlier in the day, Deshmukh announced that Gupta, whogave permission to the Wadhawans to travel to Mahabaleshwar, a popular hill station in Satara district, has been sent on compulsory leave.
The bureaucrat had issued a letter exempting the Wadhawans from the lockdown norms citing a family emergency.
Deshmukh said the decision has been taken after discussion with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
According to local police officials, the Wadhawan family along with others travelled from Khandala to Mahabaleshwar on Wednesday evening in their cars, even when both Pune and Satara districts are sealed amid the ongoing lockdown for containing coronavirus.
Kapil and Dheeraj Wadhawan are accused in Yes Bank and DHFL fraud cases.
