In a shocking twist in the Aryan Khan’s arrest case, an NCB witness has sensationally alleged the exchange of a huge volume of money involving officers from the anti-drug agency including Sameer Wankhede. NCB witness Prabhakar Sail, according to NDTV, worked as a personal bodyguard of KP Gosavi, whose selfie with Shah Rukh Khan’s son had gone viral.
Sail, in his affidavit, reportedly alleged that he heard Gosavi speak with one Sam D’Souza about one Rs. 18 crore deal of which Rs. 8 crore was meant to be paid to NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede. According to Sail’s affidavit, he was present in the car when Gosavi spoke to D’Souza.
Sail alleged that Gosavi held a meeting with D’Souza and Shah Rukh Khan’s manager, Pooja Dadlani in a car the same evening. The NCB witness added that he received the cash from Gosavi and personally delivered it to D’Souza.
Sail, one of the nine witnesses whose names were recently released by the NCB, said that he feared for his life after Gosavi went missing. This, according to him, was the reason why he decided to file an affidavit.
The affidavit read, “On 1st October 2021, at about 9.45 PM, he (Gosavi) called me and said that I should be ready by 7.30 AM and that he has left. On 2nd October 2021, at about 7.35 Kiran Gosavi called me and said that he had transferred Rs. 500 to my gpay account and told me that he is sending me a location on WhatsApp and told me to come to that location.
“I reached CST station at 8.45 PM and when I saw the location at WhatsApp, it was shown as NCB office. I reached there by taxi and saw white Innova car MH-12 GJ-3000 parked opposite NCB office, I asked the driver Vijay Suryavanshi as to where is KP Gosavi. He told me that KP Gosavi is in NCB office and he is in a meeting with NCB officials.”
He continued, “I was with the driver at about 10 AM. Kiran Gosavi called the driver and came down with NCB officer for NCB office. Kiran Gosavi and the said officer left in the said Innova and instructed me to wait there itself. (sic)”
He wrote, “At about 10.30 pm I was called (by) KP Gosavi in the boarding area and I saw Aryan Khan in one of the cabins at the cruise boarding area. I saw one girl, Munmun Dhamecha and few others with NCB officials.”

He added, “Till such time we reached Lower Parel KP Gosavi was talking to Sam on the phone and stated that you put a bomb of 25 crores and let’s settle at 18 final because we have to give 8 crores to Sameer Wankhede.”
Wankhede has denied allegations saying that he would give a fitting reply soon.
Interestingly, Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik had recently accused Wankhede of indulging in extortion as he raised questions on the latter’s mysterious trips to the Maldives and Dubai in the past.
Aryan Khan was arrested with seven others from a Goa-bound cruise ship by the NCB. He;s been in Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail since 8 October.
The photo of Gosavi’s selfie with Aryan minutes after his arrest had gone viral. Gosavi has since then gone missing with the Maharashtra Police issuing a lookout notice against him.
