Nov 3, 2021: According to Indian media, Sameer Wankhede, zonal director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), had allegedly demanded Rs 80 million to save Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan from arrest in a drug case.
The NCB official is currently being investigated by a vigilance team, which is investigating allegations of extortion against him in the same case.
According to details, Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani had allegedly paid Rs 5 million to save Aryan Khan from arrest. In an interview to Indian media, ‘middle man’ Sam de Souza claimed that Dadlani had paid to save Khan’s son from arrest but when they found out that it was not possible and the main witness KP Gosavi was a fraud, they returned it.
Sam de Souza is one of the persons named in the affidavit submitted by Prabhakar Sail, another witness in the Aryan Khan drug case.
In the affidavit, Sail claimed that Gosavi and others were demanding Rs 250 million, of which Rs 80 million was to be paid to the zonal director of the Narcotics Control Bureau.
Aryan Khan was released from jail on October 30 after being granted bail by the Bombay High Court in a drug case. He was arrested on October 2 after an NCB raid on a cruise ship.
