CBI books Sameer Wankhede for seeking Rs 25 crore bribe in Aryan Khan drug case

On October 2, 2021, Aryan Khan was reportedly apprehended in connection with a drug bust case aboard the Cordelia cruise ship.

In a recent development, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) conducted searches at the premises of Sameer Wankhede, a former officer of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). This move comes after the CBI filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Wankhede and four others for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs 25 crore to not implicate Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, in the drugs-on-cruise case. According to officials, the searches were carried out on Friday.

In the latest development of the drugs-on-cruise case, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has cleared Aryan Khan of all charges, as per their charge-sheet. However, a SIT established by the anti-drugs agency has alleged that the investigation led by Wankhede had certain shortcomings.

According to sources, a series of searches were conducted across 29 locations in Mumbai, Delhi, Ranchi, and Kanpur.

In May of last year, Wankhede, the former head of the Narcotics Control Bureau in Mumbai during the time of Aryan Khan’s detainment, was relocated to the Directorate General of Taxpayer Services in Chennai.
