Narcotics Control Bureau Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede, who is supervising probe into the recent cruise drugs bust case in which Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan has been arrested, has filed a police complaint in Mumbai alleging two cops were monitoring his movements, reports PTI.
The NCB Officials on Monday met senior officials of the Mumbai Police to lodge a complaint for the same. The meeting was between Wankhede, senior officer Mutha Jain and Maharashtra police chief.
According to the NCB official, Wankhede had been regularly visiting the cemetery in suburban Oshiwara where his mother was buried after her death in 2015.
Two officials, reportedly from the Oshiwara police station, allegedly went to the cemetery and took CCTV footage to monitor Wankhede’s movement, he said.
Wankhede also attached CCTV footage of the Oshiwara cemetery in support of his claim, reports PTI.
Wankhede has been dealing with high-profile drug-related cases since he took over as zonal director of the central agency, but has never noticed anything like this, he said.
The top officer of the drug law enforcement agency has been part of multiple high-profile raids carried out by the NCB in the recent past.
The NCB had conducted a raid on a Goa-bound cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai and claimed to have recovered drugs from some persons, following which it detained some persons, including Aryan Khan and some others. So far, the agency has arrested 20 people in the case.
Earlier in the day, a special court in Mumbai said it would hear the bail application of Aryan on October 13 and directed the NCB to file its reply on that date.
Besides Aryan, four other accused in the case – Arbaaz Merchant, Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Sateja, and Mohak Jaiswal – have also filed bail pleas in the special court.
