After the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) cleared Aryan Khan in the ‘drugs on cruise’ case, sources suggest action against ex-NCB official Sameer Wankhede is expected. ANI sources: “The government has asked for punishment against ex-NCB official Sameer Wankhede for his faulty probe of Aryan Khan’s drugs haul. Sameer Wankhede’s fraudulent caste certificate lawsuit has been resolved.”

The NCB cleared Aryan Khan on Friday in the October 2021 ‘drugs on cruise’ case. NCB officials stated Aryan Khan and five others weren’t named due to “insufficient proof.” NCB’s SN Pradhan remarked, “NDPS Act doesn’t use preponderance and likelihood. We didn’t find sufficient proof.” Adding, “WhatsApp chats should be verified. WhatsApp communication is worthless, courts have ruled. WhatsApp isn’t comprehensive evidence unless it’s verified with physical evidence.”

The ruling NCP in Maharashtra asked, post-judgment, who would be responsible for Aryan Khan’s anguish. It further claimed NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede was accountable to the public. Ally Congress claimed the lawsuit was part of a “bigger conspiracy” to destabilise the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) administration it shares with Shiv Sena and NCP.

The federal anti-drugs agency said in a statement in Delhi that its Special Investigation Team (SIT) conducted a “objective” investigation based on “evidence beyond reasonable doubt.” NCP spokesman Clyde Crasto: “Why was Aryan Khan tainted? Motive? Who’s responsible for this boy’s trauma? Questions abound.”

Mahesh Tapase, NCP’s chief spokesperson, said Aryan Khan’s clean chit proved Nawab Malik was right when he declared the case was bogus. He said Malik criticised raids and witness identification.

The NCB arrested Aryan Khan on October 3 and granted him bail later that month. A Wankhede-led NCB team raided the cruise ship and arrested 20 people, including Aryan.
