Extortion, Forgery: Web of Allegations Around Sameer Wankhede

NCB officer Sameer Wankhede has been accused of extortion, black mail and using a fake SC certificate to get in to the IRS, says journalist Swati Chaturvedi.

Wankhede has been reportedly removed from his role as the lead investigator in the Mumbai cruise drugs case in which actor Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan was arrested.

Chaturvedi further added that removing him from the Aryan Khan case is no punishment. “Sameer Wankhede has been accused of extortion, black mail & using a fake SC certificate to get in to the IRS. Removing him from the Aryan Khan is no punishment. He should be investigated & punished,” she said.

The NCB vigilance team are probing against Wankhede into the allegations made by a witness in the extortion bid case of Rs 25 crore by some agency officials, including Wankhede, and few others for letting off Khan.

NCB Deputy Director-General Gyaneshwar Singh is conducting a departmental vigilance probe into allegations of extortion made in the drugs-on-cruise case in which Wankhede and his team had arrested Aryan Khan and seven others on October.

Prabhakar Sail, an independent witness in the case, had claimed and filed an affidavit that there was an extortion bid of Rs 25 crore by some agency officials and others for letting off Aryan Khan from the cruise drugs case. Sail said that he overheard that a “bribe” of Rs 8 crore was to be paid to NCB Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede out of this money.

Sail claims to be the bodyguard of a private person and another witness in the drugs case, KP Gosavi, who was recently arrested by the Pune police in a fraud case pending against him.

However, Wankhede has denied these claims.

NCP Minister Nawab Malik has accused Wankhede of forging his caste certificate and other documents to secure a job from the SC quota after clearing the UPSC examination as an IRS officer. Malik has been claiming that Sameer Wankhede is a Muslim by birth.
