Aryan Khan’s Cocaine Plan; Nawab Malik Seeks Investigation On Sameer Wankhede

The Aryan Khan case is becoming bigger, with new controversies popping up every day. While the bail plea of SRK’s son Aryan Khan is being heard at the Bombay High Court, the case has already taken an ugly turn or, more so, a political turn with opposition parties accusing NCB officials of targeting specific individuals on the orders of the central government. 

Aryan Khan Case Updates

According to the latest development in the Aryan Khan, the controversial WhatsApp chats recovered from accused Aryan Khan’s phone has revealed the alleged ‘cocaine plan’ being helmed by SRK’s son Aryan Khan. In the conversation, Aryan is jokingly threatening his friends to get the NCB act against them. Meanwhile, the conversations have also revealed that Aryan placed an order worth INR 80,000 for weed. Previously, WhatsApp chats were found between Aryan Khan and Ananya Panday, in which Aryan asks: “You bought the weed?” to which Ananya replied: “I am getting it,” 

The Narcotics Control Bureau has filed its reply to reject the bail plea of Aryan Khan. In its response, the anti-drug agency said: “The investigation so far has revealed an international drug connection’ of his (Aryan Khan), it is being investigated and sufficient time as per protocol is needed to properly unearth such link. The possibility of him (Aryan Khan) tampering with witnesses and fleeing cannot be ruled out. Besides, it is not possible to dissect Aryan Khan from the large conspiracy, common thread and drug network which is under investigation.” Meanwhile, the NCB, in its reply, also told the court that malafide attempts are being made to derail the investigation.

Aryan Khan is being represented by former Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi, along with Satish Mahashinde and Senior Counsel Amit Desai before Justice Nitin Sambre. Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau during a raid conducted on 2nd October 2021 at a rave party in a cruise off to goa. Aryan Khan is currently lodged at the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, and his bail plea has already been rejected twice. 

As per recent updates, NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede has reached the NCB office in Delhi amid extortion allegations made by an NCB witness. The NCB is likely to order a vigilance enquiry against Sameer Wankhede. 

The Extortion Angle 

The NCB official who has been hitting the headlines since the Aryan Khan arrest took place is NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede, the investigating officer behind Aryan Khan’s case. In fact, the officer created a stir after an independent NCB witness, Prabhakar Sail, accused Mr Wankhede of extortion and claimed that he had signed blank documents that were given to him by the anti-drug agency. In response, Sameer Wankhede has issued an official statement requesting the Mumbai police to make sure that no legal action is taken against him to frame him with ulterior motives. Though many have raised questions over the NCB’s zonal director, the anti-drug agency has denied all allegations. 

The department, in its statement, said: “Our zonal director, Mumbai Zonal Unit, Mr Sameer Wankhede, has categorically denied these allegations. As some of the contents of the affidavit related to vigilance matters, I am hereby forwarding the affidavit to the Director-General Narcotics Control Bureau and requesting him for further necessary actions,” If you are wondering who Prabhakar Sail is, well he is an NCB witness who has claimed that exchange of money took place between PK Gosavi and Sameer Wankhede. In his affidavit, Sail claimed that Rs 25 crore was extorted in the case, out of which Rs 8 crore was allegedly paid to NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede. KP Gosavi, whose name has been mentioned in Sail’s affidavit, is the person whose selfie with SRK’s son Aryan Khan went viral on social media. Gosavi is absconded after the Maharashtra police issued a notice against him. 

The Alleged ‘Fake Identity’ Of Sameer Wankhede

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has also written to the Maharashtra police to act on Sail’s affidavit. Meanwhile, Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik took to Twitter, sensationally claiming that Sameer Wankhede was Muslim and revealing his real name as Sameer Dawood Wankhede. He also posted the picture of a document that looks like a birth certificate and wrote: “Sameer Dawood Wankhede’s fraud started from here,” However, an NDTV report suggested that Nawab Malik’s action has indeed hurt the sentiments of Sameer Wankhede. While reacting to the controversy, Sameer 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?” Well, the Nawab Malik-Sameer Wankhede controversy doesn’t end here as the Maharashtra Minister also accused Sameer Wankhede of illegal phone tapping. 

Nawab Malik Puts Allegations Of Illegal Phone Tapping On Sameer Wankhede 

On Tuesday, Nawab Malik took to Twitter and shared a letter claiming that he received it from an unnamed NCB officer. The letter allegedly lists 36 such cases where Sameer Wankhede and his team planned drugs on people to frame them. Mr Malik also put allegations of illegal phone tapping and claimed that Sameer has been illegally intercepting phones of some people through 2 people in Mumbai and Thane. 

Nawab Malik has requested officials to include the letter in the investigation that is being conducted against NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede. Meanwhile, NCB has denied all allegations and is expected to release a statement regarding the matter soon.
