Aryan Khan case investigator used a friend as a witness: Nawab Malik

Aryan Khan case investigator used a friend as a witness in Aryan khan case: Nawab Malik

On Saturday, Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik, whose son-in-law has been accused in a drug case by the Narcotics Control Bureau,

He brought new charges against the agency and its zonal director Sameer Wankhede, the chief investigator of the Aryan Khan case.

In a sequence of tweets, the minister alleged that Wankhede uses his 'friends as a 'panch' (witness) in different circumstances. Malik shared the details of Fletcher Patel, who was the witness in three cases of NCB. To prove this, Fletcher Patel's connection with Sameer Wankhede, the minister, shared Fletcher's Instagram photo with Sameer Wankhede's sister.

This accusation is not directly linking with the Aryan Khan case. Still, it comes as part of the series of allegations that the minister has bowed on the agency after it arrested Aryan Khan, son of Shah Rukh Khan, among others, from a cruise on 3rd October on charges of drugs consumption.

On Friday, Uddhav Thackeray, chief minister of Maharashtra, in his Dusshera speech, attacked NCB and said they are only interested in getting photos clicked, catching celebrities, and making some noise while Maharashtra Police are tracking down drugs of crore.

Since the arrest of Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty in a drug case associated with the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the film industry has come on the agency's radar with many Bollywood actors called for questioning in the past year. In his speech, Uddhav said there had been an effort to make Mumbai look like the drug capital while a massive drug haul was reported in Gujarat from Mundra port.

Aryan Khan's arrest has created a political charge in Maharashtra, and NCP leader Nawab Malik has been assailing the NCB. Earlier, he revealed Manish Bhanushali and KP Gosavi, who were present during Aryan Khan's arrest. He claimed that these two have questionable backgrounds. KP Gosavi has fraud cases against him and Bhanushali being a BJP leader. Malik also alleged that NCB released some powerful alliance who were detained from the same raid case.

The NCB countered all these claims and said it did nothing illegal, hinting at the minister's issues with the agency because of action against his son-in-law.
