Mumbai: A Maharashtra caste scrutiny committee gave a clean chit to former NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede in a caste certificate case stating he wasn’t a Muslim by birth.
Wankhede landed into controversy after former Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik claimed that the officer had used a fake caste certificate to get government jobs. Malik claimed that Wankhede was a Muslim but he got the job under the reserved category.
Nonetheless, presently the station board has given him a clean chit saying he was certainly not a Muslim by birth. The request said that it was not demonstrated that Wankhede and his dad switched over completely to Islam “however it’s demonstrated that they had a place with Mahar-37 Scheduled Caste”, as per news office ANI.

“The Caste Scrutiny Committee in Maharashtra has rejected the protests documented against us. Every one of the real records that we submitted is legitimate. Sameer Wankhede and his dad most certainly have a place with the Scheduled Caste Mahar people group,” Wankhede said while addressing the news office.
In October last year, National Commission for Scheduled Castes Vice Chairmen Arun Haldar visited the home Wankhede to see a few unique reports.
The charges against Wankhede came just after he struck a voyage transport and arrested Aryan Khan, son of Shah Rukh Khan, regarding a medications racket case. As the test started, the NCP pioneer guaranteed that Aryan was being outlined and that the whole test was terrible.
In a progression of tweets, Malik guaranteed that his standing declaration was likewise phoney. The then Maharashtra government said it would investigate the fake certificate case against Wankhede. Aryan Khan was recently given clean chit as no evidence was found against him.
