The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a corruption case against former NCB officer Sameer Wankhede who arrested Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in a drugs case two years ago. Raids are underway at Wankhede’s residence in Mumbai. The corruption case was registered against the IRS officer following a preliminary inquiry by the CBI on the basis of a vigilance report. During the viligance inquiry, it was found that Sameer Wankhede amassed assets through corruption. In October 2021, a team led by Wankhede raided Cordelia cruise at the Mumbai International Cruise Terminal and arrested Aryan Khan and others. Initially, charges of drug possession, consumption, and trafficking were applied in the case. Aryan Khan, who had spent 22 days in jail, was given a clean chit by NCB in May 2022 due to “lack of sufficient evidence”.
