Allegedly threatening Shah Rukh Khan; Vigilance will question Sameer Wankhede today
Vigilance will today question NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede for allegedly threatening Shah Rukh Khan and trying to extort money. A letter from an unnamed NCB official with serious allegations against Sameer was released yesterday. It has been revealed that the drugs seized from Aryan Khan were brought by NCB officials themselves. Meanwhile, Aryan Khan ‘s bail application is still pending in the Bombay High Court.
According to one of the witnesses in the case, Sameer Wankhede and others were trying to extort at least Rs 18 crore from Shah Rukh Khan. Another witness in the case, Kiran Goswami, is said to have acted as mediator. Aryan Khan, who is in custody, has been seen calling several people on the phone.
The NCB’s fifth vigilance team, which will arrive in Mumbai today, will seek an explanation directly from Sameer. The revelation of the witness was one of the reasons raised in the Bombay High Court yesterday against Aryan Khan’s bail application. It is alleged that the witnesses were influenced by Shah Rukh’s manager.
However, he told the court that he did not know the Aryan witnesses who denied this. Senior lawyer Mukul Rohtagi argued that the drug was not found in Aryan and that there was no scientific evidence for its use. He pointed out that even the WhatsApp chats pointed out as evidence are three years old.
Meanwhile, NCP Minister Nawab Malik yesterday released a letter claiming that it was written by an official who had worked with Sameer for two years. The letter alleges that in many cases, Sameer Wankhede used drugs obtained through his association with drug dealers. The letter also details 26 such cases, including that of Aryan Khan. The letter also alleged that Sameer Wankhede had extorted money from Bollywood stars, including Deepika Padukone.
