Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede has said that he will serve a legal notice to Maharashtra minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik for levelling fake allegations against him.
“Allegations levelled against me are false and baseless. I never went to Maldives or Dubai with my sister Yasmeen Wankhede. I never went to Dubai post joining the service. I went to the Maldives on my expenses and at that time I was on leave officially,” Wankhede said.
He further said that, “Those are photos [referring to the photos shared by Malik claiming that Wankhede and his sister were in Dubai] from Mumbai. I was in Mumbai. Find out where I was, get data from the airport. Get everything verified through my passport and visa.
Earlier, Questioning the link between Wankhede and Bollywood, Nawab utters a baseless allegation and asks him why he was visiting the Maldives when several Bollywood celebrities were also visiting the nation at the same time.
Malik further alleged extortion by Wankhede had claimed that NCB and Bharatiya Janata Party were running ‘an extortion racket’ in Mumbai. He also claimed that the anti-drug agency is filing ‘bogus’ cases against people.
“A special officer was brought in to the NCB after Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide. CBI is investigating the case but the mystery over his suicide or murder remains unresolved. But the NCB is now after the film industry. Dozens of actors were paraded before the NCB. Rhea Chakraborty was implicated.”
The NCB officer further said personal attacks were being made on the NCB in the past 15 days. “Attacks are being made on my deceased mother, sister and retired father. I strongly condemn this,” Wankhede said.
