Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik on Wednesday alleged that an international drug mafia was present at the cruise party. Malik also attacked Sameer Wankhede saying he converted his religion and posted the ‘Nikah Nama’ of his first marriage.
Malik claimed that NCB people know who the person with a beard is and asked the agency to check the CCTV footage of all rooms and dance parties. Malik also claimed that he believes that the person ‘with a beard’ is a friend of Sameer Wankhede.
An NCB vigilance team had arrived in Mumbai this afternoon and is understood to have recorded Wankhede’s statement besides summoning a ‘Panch-Witness’ Prabhakar Sail for the probe.
“We have started the probe. This is a very sensitive investigation, too early to share anything. We shall inquire all aspects and later inform the media of the developments,” NCB vigilance team member Dnyaneshwar Singh told media persons.
Along with the serial exposes by Nawab Malik, Prabhakar Sail a key witness in the Aryan khan drug case had claimed that Rs 18-crore was being extorted from Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan of which Rs 8-crore was reportedly intended for Wankhede.
An ACP-level Mumbai Police officer will investigate the 4 separate complaints that have been lodged against the NCB officer on various counts.
