Officer Who Arrested, Framed Aryan Khan Charged Of Corruption
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed a corruption case against Sameer Wankhede, the anti-narcotics officer who arrested Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan in the drugs-on-cruise case two years ago. Aryan Khan was on board the cruiser when the officials conducted raids.
A top CBI source said that during the raid on the Cordelia cruise, the NCB officials led by Wankhede allegedly threatened the individuals who were on board and demanded Rs 25 crore from Aryan Khan’s family for not lodging any case against him.
“Out of Rs 25 crore, the Khan family paid Rs 50 lakh to the NCB officials,” said the source. Aryan Khan, who spent four weeks in jail, was cleared of all charges by the anti-drugs agency in May 2022 due to “lack of sufficient evidence”.
Now a case has been lodged against Wankhede and four others under corruption and other Acts.
Wankhede is currently posted in Chennai.
Raids by CBI are currently going on at 29 locations in Mumbai, Delhi, Ranchi and Kanpur and in Mumbai – all related to Wankhede.
