Mumbai cruise drugs bust case: Maharashtra BJP leader demands CBI probe into the matter




As the investigation in Mumbai cruise drugs bust case continues, the Maharashtra BJP on Sunday demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Mumbai cruise drugs case.

Challenging the Maharashtra government, the saffron party said that if the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government is clean, then it should demand a CBI probe.

BJP leader Ram Kadam said, “What is the reason to be scared if the MVA government is clean."

The leader said that a narco test should be conducted on Sunil Patil, KP Gosavi, and others and that the case be investigated with transparency to set an example.

Ram Kadam said that the truth should come out and a CBI probe is needed.

Through a series of tweets, the BJP leader questioned that first, it was Prabhakar Sail who was Kiran Gosavi’s man and let out details on the Rs 25 crore extortion deal.

“Now the question is who all were benefiting from the Rs 25 crore deal. Was anyone sending proceeds to the ministers as well? Is it because of this reason the entire government is trying to deflect the attention from the drugs and extortion angle and holding daily press conferences," said the leader?

Earlier in the day, Nawab Malik held yet another press conference and emphasised that he wasn’t against the NCB or BJP but against those who were running drug businesses and were resorting to extortion and framing innocent people.

Malik alleged that Aryan Khan's arrest was a case of kidnapping and Shahrukh had been made a victim. He targeted BJP leader Mohit Kamboj and alleged he was the mastermind of the entire case and was close to Sameer Wankhede.

Aryan Khan was last month arrested following a raid led by Wankhede on a cruise ship from which drugs were allegedly seized. He was later granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
