Mumbai Police has commenced inquiry against Sameer Wankhede, Zonal Director of Narcotics Central Bureau in the backdrop of Prabhakar Sail’s recorded statement.
This also comes after an independent witness in the drugs bust case levelled allegations of extortion against the NCB Zonal Director.
Reportedly, Prabhakar Sail, the independent witness, recorded his statement on camera with the police on Tuesday. The police will first investigate electronic evidence. A DCP-level officer recorded the statement of Sail.
The police will scan the CCTV footage to trace the people, their location and places that Sail mentioned in the statement. Sail’s phone is also being tracked for the location to corroborate facts.
As per Sail’s allegations that money was exchanged through bags, the Mumbai Police will also investigate the CCTV footage for this.
Sources reveal that the Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik has already met Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in this connection.
Earlier on Sunday last week, Prabhakar Sail had made a sensational claim through an affidavit, alleging that he overheard KP Gosavi and one Sam D’Souza talking about 25 crore pay-off to let Aryan Khan go.
They were discussing that out of the discussed amount, Rs 8 crore would go to Sameer Wankhede.
According to Prabhakar Sail’s claim, he spotted Gosavi meeting Shah Rukh Khan’s Manager, Pooja Dadlani and that he was asked to sign “9-10 blank pages” in the presence of Sameer Wankhede after the cruise raids.
When Prabhakar alleged threat to his life from Sameer Wankhede, the Maharashtra government provided security.
This has been termed as an
Hi-profile case against an officer of the rank of Zonal Director of Narcotics Central Bureau in regard to arrest and judicial custody of Aryan Khan.
Meanwhile news is making the rounds that Jihad has been launched against the NCB Chief. This has suddenly cropped up amid the Inquiry by the Mumbai Police against Sameer Wankhede.
