Sameer Wankhede shifted from Aryan Khan’s case – Times of India

NCB Zonal director Sameer Wankhede who had been probing the Mumbai drug bust case has reportedly been removed from his role as the lead investigator in which Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan was accused. Sources state that the central zone takes over the case, while Wankhede continues to be the zonal head.

Buzz is that, instead of Wankhede, Sanjay Singh of NCB will now be the supervising officer of the 5 cases including the Aryan Khan case. Cases transferred as a vigilance probe is underway and due to certain allegations on Sameer.

According to an official tweet by ANI, Wankhede had also stated that he had filed a petition asking that either a central agency or the NCB’s Delhi unit should take over the probe into the Aryan Khan case and the Nawab Malik case. The tweet read, “I’ve not been removed from investigation. It was my writ petition in court that the matter be probed by a central agency. So Aryan case & Sameer Khan case are being probed by Delhi NCB’s SIT. It’s a coordination b/w NCB teams of Delhi & Mumbai:NCB Zonal Dir Sameer Wankhede to ANI”

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”.
