Sameer has reportedly been mired into controversies, after NCP leader and Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik accused him of forging documents to get a government job, lying about his religion and arresting people in “bogus” drugs cases. However, Wankhede has denied all allegations. Reportedly, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been formed to oversee the transferred cases. An offcial tweet from nawab also confirmed Sameer stepping down from the case. The tweet read, “Sameer Wankhede removed from 5 cases including the Aryan Khan case. There are 26 cases in all that need to be probed. This is just the beginning… a lot more has to be done to clean this system and we will do it”.
