The controversies surrounding the Mumbai cruise drugs case are reaching new levels each day, as the drug bust has soon evolved into a political situation in Maharashtra, where NCB official Sameer Wankhede has become the brunt of several allegations.

Referring to these allegations, Kranti Wankhede, the NCB zonal director’s wife, has written a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, seeking justice for her husband. She has also sought an appointment with the chief minister at his earliest convenience.

In her letter, Kranti has mentioned that the entire family is facing threats and insults and the reputation of her husband is being tarnished. Several allegations have been made against Sameer Wankhede and his family surrounding the current Mumbai drug case, amid which Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested.

Kranti Wankhede wrote in her letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray, “We’re being insulted before people every day. A woman’s dignity is being toyed with in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’ state. Had Balasaheb been here today, he wouldn’t have liked it.”

“He (Balasaheb) is not here today but you are. We see him in you, we trust you. I believe that you will not allow injustice to my family and me. As a Marathi, I look towards you with hopes of justice. I request you for justice,” she wrote in her letter, which she also posted on her official Twitter account.

In her letter, Kranti also sought time from the chief minister for a meeting to discuss these matters personally. While speaking to ANI about the issue, she said, “I have not received a response so far, I am waiting for a reply.”

A drug raid was carried out by Sameer Wankhede on October 2, after which Aryan Khan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Wankhede had said that 13 grams of cocaine, 5 grams of mephedrone, 21 grams of Charas, 22 pills of MDMA (ecstasy), and ₹1.33 lakh in cash were seized in the raid.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik ha hit out at Wankhede several times during the course of the ongoing investigation, a lot of them surrounding his personal life and family.

Sameer Wankhede, who is the zonal director of Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) Mumbai unit, has been the recipient of a lot of arising theories and allegations regarding the ongoing Mumbai cruise drug case, which involves Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan.

Sameer Wankhede has now written a letter to Mumbai Police Commissioner and has requested him to ensure that no precipitate legal action is carried out against him by “unknown persons”, and has also asked for protection from the Mumbai Police.

In his letter, Wankhede has written, “It has come to my notice that some precipitated legal action for framing me falsely is being planned by unknown persons in relation to alleged vigilance related issue in NCB Cr. No. 94/2021.”

“It is also brought to your notice that threat of jail and dismissal has been issued against the undersigned on public media by highly respectable public functionaries. Hence, you have been requested to kindly ensure that no precipitated legal action is carried out to frame the undersigned falsely with ulterior motives,” he further added.

This letter has been issued by Sameer Wankhede just a few hours after an independent witness in the Mumbai cruise drugs case made shocking claims against the NCB official. The witness has said that Wankhede had demanded Rs 25 crore to let off Aryan Khan in the drugs case.

The NCB issued an official statement after this claim surfaced, stating that the witness should be issuing his statements in the court of law rather than on social media. NCB further said that Sameer Wankhede has denied all the claims made against him.

Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB on October 3, along with several others, in the Mumbai cruise drug case. He was arrested on the charges of consumption of drugs and ‘conspiracy’ and has since been moved to Arthur Road Jail.

The ongoing Mumbai cruise drug case has attracted a lot of attention because of the involvement of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan. Apart from public attention, the case has also sprung about a political debate in Maharashtra.

While talking about the case, Maharashtra Minister Chhagan Bhujbal has mocked the ruling BJP over handling the case. The senior minister has said that if Shah Rukh Khan was a part of the saffron party, then the drugs would have become sugar powder.

He further talked about how a major consignment of drugs was seized from the Mundra Port in Gujarat, but instead of probing further in that case, the Narcotics Control Bureau, which is a Central agency, has been hounding the Bollywood superstar.

The senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader, while talking about the case, said, “Drugs will become sugar powder if Shah Rukh Khan joins the BJP.” Bhujbal made these comments while speaking at a Samta Parishad-NCP function in Beed.

While taking another dig at BJP, Chhagan Bhujbal further said that the Maharashtra government had got an ordinance passed on OBC quota but a BJP functionary had challenged it in court. He questioned the Centre’s intentions when it came to empowering the Other Backward Classes.

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB in relation to the drug bust which was made on a cruise ship in Mumbai during a party, where Khan was an attendee. Khan was arrested on October 3, along with seven others, and was accused of consumption and ‘conspiracy’, among other charges.

Bollywood of late is marred by various drug scandals, the latest being the Mumbai drug bust case on Saturday which saw Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan being questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) sprung into action last year after the unfortunate and sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. During that time Narcotics Control Bureau’s Sameer Wankhede, a top Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer probed actress Rhea Chakraborty on a drugs conspiracy link.

Subsequently, many cases related to drugs in Bollywood came to light from time to time creating ripples within the industry and giving some food for thought to the social media users. Today we look at who is the man behind this clean-up spree who has shaken the roots of Bollywood by bringing out the film industry-drugs nexus, a problem that remained swept under the carpets for a bit too long.

Who is Sameer Wankhede?

Sameer Wankhede is a 2008 Batch Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer who has a special Bollywood connection.

He is married to popular Marathi actress Kranti Redkar who has worked with actor Ajay Devgn in his 2003 film Gangajal.

Sameer Wankhede and Kranti Redkar tied the knot in March 2017 in a private wedding ceremony.

His sister-in-law is Film producer Hridaya Banerjee whose husband Argha Banerjee is a creative director and producer.

As an IRS Officer, Sameer Wankhede’s first posting was at the Mumbai airport as the Customs Officer. 

In the last two years, a probe led by Wankhede and his team managed to seize drugs worth Rs 17,000 crore.

Sameer Wankhede’s career

Sameer Wankhede worked as Deputy Commissioner of Air Intelligence Unit (AIU) and Additional SP of National Investigation Agency (NIA).

From 2008-2020, Wankhede also worked as Joint Commissioner of Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) and Zonal Director of NCB.

He is reportedly known for not giving custom clearance to many celebrities till they disclosed the goods bought in foreign currency and paid tax on it.

As IRS Officer, Sameer Wankhede has booked more than 2,000 celebrities for not paying the taxes.

During his high-profile career, Wankhede caught singer Mika Singh at the Mumbai airport with foreign currency in 2013.

The top cop has also raided properties owned by many Bollywood celebs, including Anurag Kashyap, Vivek Oberoi and Ram Gopal Varma.

In 2011, even the cricket World Cup trophy, which was made of gold, was released at the Mumbai airport only after paying custom duty.

Under him, NCB on Saturday evening raided a rave party where drugs were being used.
