Mumbai Police appoints 4-member team to probe 'bribery' charges against NCB's Sameer Wankhede

The Mumbai Police has appointed four officers to probe allegations of ‘bribery’ against NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede. An order in this regard was issued by Joint Commissioner of Police Vishwas Nangre Patil on Wednesday.

According to officials, the probe will be supervised by Additional Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dilip Sawant.

The four-member team will comprise one officer each from the Azad Maidan and Colaba police stations, along with one officer from the Mumbai Police’s Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC) and one officer from the force’s Cyber Cell.

A senior official told news agency PTI that Mumbai Police has “clubbed” all four applications filed against Sameer Wankhede. All four applications were marked to the Mata Ramabai Ambedkar Marg police station, the officer added.

Four separate complaints of ‘bribery’ were filed against IRS officer Sameer Wankhede by Prabhakar Sail, Sudha Dwivedi, Kanishka Jain and Nitin Deshmukh.

One of the complainants, Prabhakar Sail, is an independent witness of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the Aryan Khan case.

In an affidavit he filed last week, Sail claimed to have overheard another independent witness, KP Gosavi, and one Sam D’Souza, discuss a Rs 25 crore ‘pay-off’ scheme to let actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan go.

Prabhakar Sail claims that Rs 8 crore of this amount would have gone to Sameer Wankhede, the officer in charge of the Aryan Khan case.

Earlier this month, Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik had told media outlets that he would seek a probe into allegations against Wankhede. NCP leader Malik also met Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil on Tuesday to discuss the issue.
