Many allegations have been made against the Narcotics Control Bureau, but after the wait of 25 days, Aryan Khan finally got bail. But the case does not end here, many more truths are yet to be revealed.
Bail granted to Aryan Khan
Aryan Khan was taken into custody on October 3, after the interrogation about the drugs found in the cruise during the rave party. After the wait of 25 days, Aryan was granted bail by the Bombay High Court. Later, when he was informed about the decision of the High Court by the prison staff in Arthur Road Jail, he was happy and also expressed his gratitude towards the prison staff for the cooperation, as informed by the jail official.
Aryan Khan also promised to help the family members of some of the prisoners with whom he used to talk during his stay in the prison and also assured them about the legal help. Along with Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaz Merchant were also granted bail.
Munmun Dhamecha was at Byculla women’s prison, and Arbaz Merchant was at Arthur Road jail. In total, twenty people had been arrested in the case after the NCB team raided the party on Cordelia Cruise’s ship and found some amount of drugs.
Apart from these, now the zonal director of Narcotics Control Bureau, Sameer Wankhede, has becoe the new target. A statement made by one of the witnesses stated that he had apparently asked for Rs 25 crore for settling down Aryan’s case, and also about forging the documents for getting into the government job.
What are the allegations against Sameer Wankhede?
Sameer Wankhede, the zonal director of Narcotics Control Bureau has been accused of forging the documents for clearing his UPSC. Nawab Malik, a minister told that Sameer Wankhede forged the documents for the benefit of reservation for the Scheduled Castes, as despite belonging from a Muslim background, he was ineligible for the reservation.
According to the reports, the government has allotted a 15% reservation quota for the Scheduled Castes in the government jobs, but, it has one condition – if any Hindu belonging to the Scheduled Castes converts his religion to Islam, that person will lose the Scheduled Castes status and will no longer be eligible for the reservation quota. If the allegation by Nawab Malik is proven, the zonal director of NCB, Sameer Wankhede will lose his job.
Earlier in 2007, Sameer Wankhede ranked five hundred and sixty-one in Civil Services Examination. He was selected as a candidate based on the Scheduled Castes category and was appointed as an officer of Indian Revenue Services of the batch 2008. Malik said that Sameer Wankhede’s father, Dnyandev Kachru Wankhede belonged to Scheduled Castes and converted to Islam before he married Zaheeda Begum, mother of Sameer Wankhede.
Nawab Malik also released the birth record of Sameer Wankhede, and there it is mentioned that his father’s name is Dawood K Wankhede. Malik also added that Wankhede has been raised as a Muslim and also released a nikahnama of Sameer Wankhede and his wife dated December 7, 2006, where his name is written as Sameer Dawood Wankhede. Nawab Malik clearly said that Sameer Wankhede was selected on the basis of the Scheduled Castes reservation quota, which he was not eligible for.
