NCB Puts Sameer Wankhede’s Investigations Under Review
As per the latest update coming from NCB on Friday, a total of 6 cases pertaining to Mumbai zone will now be investigated by a central NCB team. These cases include the recent case of Aryan Khan that became the reason for all the unnecessary storm.
Deputy DG, South-Western Region NCB Mutha Ashok Jain stated that it was an ‘an administrative decision’ taken to probe these cases. This comes after a petition filed by Sameer Wankhede before the Bombay High Court.
In his petition, Wankhede stated that a central vigilance team needs to be created to investigate all these cases including that of Sameer Khan and Aryan Khan, especially when Nawab Malik made various allegations against Wankhede along with the working of NCB.
Another development in the case is that Sameer Wankhede has completely denied all allegations levelled against him. But he has not received any kind of relief from the court as of now. As per the NCB, they are currently investigating on the allegations made by Nawab Malik on Wankhede.
Earlier, a team of Delhi NCB headed to Mumbai to record the statement of Wankhede and remaining people.
