The Enforcement Directorate (ED) registered a money laundering case against former Zonal Director of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Sameer Wankhede.
A vigilance inquiry was conducted by NCB after allegations of corruption and extortion surfaced against Wankhede and two other NCB officers. The inquiry revealed that Wankhede demanded money from actor Shah Rukh Khan for the release of his son Aryan Khan in the Cordelia cruise case.
Sources said that Wankhede, and two other officers — Superintendent VV Singh and Intelligence Officer Ashish Ranjan Prasad — who were part of the Cordelia Cruise case probe, will be summoned by the Enforcement Directorate.
Earlier, Delhi’s Patiala House Court sought an action taken report (ATR) from Delhi Police on a plea by IRS officer Sameer Wankhede who filed harassment charges against IPS officer Gyaneshwar Singh.
The court has issued a notice to Delhi Police on Wankhede’s plea, seeking an FIR against IPS officer Gyaneshwar Singh alleging offences under the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
