The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) gave Shah Rukh Khan's eldest son Aryan Khan a clean pass in the drugs-on-cruise case last week. Since his arrest in the drugs on the cruise case last year, the star youngster has been hogging all the attention. For the uninitiated, after his detention on October 2, 2021, Aryan was taken to the Arthur Road jail. A fresh development is that former Mumbai NCB Zonal director Sameer Wankhede, who was previously involved in the Aryan Khan case probe, has been relocated.
Wankhede has been transferred from Mumbai to Chennai, according to ANI. On May 30, the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer Sameer Wankhede was posted to Chennai by the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC).
Earlier, NCB Director General SN Pradhan told CNN-News 18 that the initial inquiry revealed numerous shortcomings in Wankhede's handling of the issue. Pradhan further stated that the final report on the Wankhede Vigilance Enquiry would be released soon. ANI turned to Twitter writing, “It's learnt that Govt has asked Competent Authority to take appropriate action against ex-NCB official Sameer Wankhede for his shoddy investigation into Aryan Khan drugs haul case. Govt has already taken action in the case of Sameer Wankhede's fake caste certificate case: Sources.”
The inspection team is also looking into the corruption angle, and the findings would be published in the report soon, he said. Wankhede has declined to comment on the development, claiming that he is "unrelated to the case."
Aryan was not found in possession of any narcotics, according to the charge sheet filed on May 27.
