MUMBAI: NCP minister Nawab Malik on Sunday tweeted “Satyamev Jayate” after an independent witness in the cruise drugs seizure case, Prabhakar Sail, made startling revelations on the Narcotic Control Bureau’s (NCB) raid on October 3. The NCB has arrested eight people, including actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan, after the cruise ship raid.

“Main witness in the case has made starting revelations. I will meet both chief minister Uddhav Thackeray and home minister Dilip Walse Patil on Monday. In my opinion, the government should set up a special investigation team to probe the involvement of organised gangs in collaboration with NCB officials,” Malik told TOI. “All raids conducted by the NCB under the leadership of Sameer Wankhede were fake and fabricated,’’ he claimed.


Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole endorsed Malik’s demand for a high-level probe into the new evidence. “From the statement of the witness [Sail], it appears that Rs 25 crore was demanded to close the case against Aryan Khan. There is a question mark over the credibility and integrity of the NCB, which is targeting the film industry. In the recent past, central agencies are making all-out efforts to destabilise and defame the MVA government,” Patole said.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said the state police should take suo motu cognisance of the disclosures made by Sail. “It was an attempt to defame the MVA government. The CM had observed that NCB raids were for defaming the state; Mumbai police had done more work and seizures,” he tweeted.

But Pravin Darekar from BJP, the opposition leader in the legislative council, claimed Malik has planned an elaborate programme to frame the Centre and central agencies in the cruise case. Reacting to Raut’s tweet, he said it is all being done to prove that the NCB and zonal director’s actions are false. It is for this reason that a video would have now been made viral, said Darekar.

Malik was the first politician to raise doubts about the integrity and credentials of Kiran Gosavi, another independent witness of the NCB. Later, it was found that he was wanted by Thane and Pune police in a cheating cases. After Malik’s disclosure, Gosavi is absconding and Pune police have issued a lookout notice against him. Malik had found that besides Gosavi, BJP activist Bhanushali too was a witness. Also of the 14 persons detained, eight were arrested and three were released, including a relative of a senior BJP leader. “The entire operations of the NCB are suspicious. Fletcher Patel, a family friend of Wankhede, was witness in at least four cases. It is against the guidelines prescribed by the Supreme Court,” Malik said.
