In another update from the Sameer Wankhede questioning, Gyaneshwar Singh, the Deputy Director-General of the Narcotics Control Bureau, northern region on Wednesday informed that he should remain the investigating officer in the Aryan Khan drug case.
Lack Of Substantial Evidence
Singh reported that there is lack of substantial evidence against Wankhede. Meanwhile, the concerned department will continue their probe into the matter. A five-member vigilance probe team reached Mumbai on Wednesday and began the investigation. So far, they have reportedly collected some documents and recordings from the Mumbai office of NCB.
He said that the statement of Wankhede has been recorded. However, it is a sensitive inquiry so sharing real-time information will not be possible.
Singh further added that Prabhakar Sail and KP Gosavi will also be interrogated. But the agency has not been able to contact them via the contact numbers and addresses provided. Talking to the media, he said that they have tried their best to contact both of them. But through media, he would like to inform them that they are free to provide any evidence in the matter to the Special Inquiry Team within two days. The Special Inquiry Team has been staying at the CRPF mess at Bandra(West).
Rs 25 Crores Extortion
The inquiry comes after Prabhakar Sail claimed that Wankhede made him sign some blank papers in connection to the Aryan Khan case. He also claimed that he overheard conversations about extortion of Rs 25 crores by some agency officials. And Sameer Wankhede would be receiving some amount from the money.
