‘Sameer Dawood Wankhede”: Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik reveals new ‘fraud’ by NCB officer as controversy over Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s arrest grows


Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik has sensationally claimed that NCB officer Sameer Wankhede was Muslim adding that his real name was Sameer Dawood Wankhede.

Sharing what looked like a birth certificate, Malik wrote, “Sameer Dawood Wankhede’s fraud started from here.”

In another photo of Wankhede, seemingly from his wedding, Malik asked mockingly, “Pehchan kaun? (Can you identify this person?)”

Quoting sources, NDTV reported that Malik’s new revelation had hurt the controversial NCB officer. Admitting that his late mother was indeed a Muslim, Wankhede reportedly said. “I have come to know about a recent tweet by Nawab Malik regarding caste certificate. This is a shoddy attempt to bring in things that are unrelated to (the drugs case). My mother was Muslim… (why) does he want to bring my dead mother into this?”

The latest revelation came a day after an NCB witness dropped a bombshell alleging an exchange of money between PK Gosavi and Sameer Wankhede in the Aryan Khan arrest case. Prabhakar Sail had said in his affidavit that Rs. 25 crore was to be extorted in the case with Rs. 8 crores meant to have been paid to Wankhede, who has denied all allegations.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut had asked the Maharashtra Police to act on the basis of the affidavit filed by Sail. Facing arrest, Wankhede had written to Mumbai Police Commissioner pleading for protection from legal action against him.

The Narcotics Control Bureau had arrested Aryan Khan from a Goa-bound cruise on 2 October. The superstar’s son has been in jail since 8 October. A Mumbai court has refused to grant him bail even after shocking details emerged exposing the conduct and integrity of the central government-owned anti-drug agency.

Gosavi, whose selfie with Aryan Khan had gone viral, has been absconding since the Maharashtra Police issued a lookout notice against him. The presence of a BJP leader at the NCB riad and its office too had raised questions over the integrity of the government agency.
