The Bombay High Court on Thursday has extended the interim protection from arrest to IRS officer and former NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede in corruption and bribery case related to arrested of actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan in an alleged drug bust case.

CBI registered FIR in May

The central agency in May registered an FIR against Wankhede and four others for allegedly demanding Rs25 crore bribe for not framing Aryan Khan in the drugs case.

The IRS officer approached the HC seeking quashing of the FIR, alleging that he was being targeted and he had kept his seniors in the loop at every stage. Following this, a vacation bench had granted him interim protection from arrest.

More details awaited
