NCP’s Maharashtra unit chief and state minister Jayant Patil has said that his party colleague Nawab Malik may have some concrete evidence against NCB’s Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede, without which he would not have made statements against the officer.
Over the last few days, Malik has been criticising Wankhede, who had supervised a raid on a cruise liner off the Mumbai coast earlier this month that led to the alleged recovery of drugs and arrest of superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan.Two days back, the NCP leader had dubbed the officer as “bogus” and asserted that once “proof” against him is out, he cannot remain in government service for even one day.
Notably, Malik’s son-in-law Sameer Khan had been arrested by the NCB on January 13 this year for alleged possession of drugs. He had got bail in September.
“Nawab Malik may have some concrete evidence against NCB’s Sameer Wankehede, without which he will not make statements against him. A clear picture will emerge in the near future,” Patil told reporters in Palghar on Friday in response to a question.
The Water Resources Minister alleged that the BJP and the government led by it at the Centre was trying all possible ways to pull down the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra.
