Former NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede approached Bombay High Court seeking that no coercive action is taken against him in the Aryan Khan bribery case. The Vacation Bench of the court is set to hear his plea at 2.30 pm today.

Wankhede had previously moved to Delhi HC which provided interim protection to Wankhede till May 22 and had asked him to move to Mumbai court. On the basis of the same, Wankhede did not appear before CBI on May 18.

Wankhede, a Indian Revenue Service officer, has previously told FPJ that he is a law-abiding and disciplined officer. He also has stated that the CBI case against him is an act of vengeance.

Allegations against Wankhede

Wankhede has been accused of seeking Rs 25 crore in bribe from actor Shah Rukh Khan in exchange of not framing his son Aryan Khan in a drugs-on-cruise case.

As per the CBI’s FIR against Wankhede, NCB Superintendent Vishwa Vijay Singh, Intelligence Officer Ashish Ranjan, witnesses KP Gosavi and Sanville D’souza, the inquiry conducted by the NCB’s special enquiry team (SET) formed under the chairmanship of CVO NCB, had revealed that on October 2, 2021, the names of certain suspects were dropped from the first information note, ‘I-Note’ and certain other accused were included subsequently to suit the proceedings. The initial I-Note contained 27 names whereas the modified I-Note only had 10 names.
