The vigilance report against former NCB officer Sameer Wankhede said that the expenditure he disclosed for his international travels could barely cover the flight fees.
The Narcotics Control Bureau’s vigilance report contained significant discoveries regarding Sameer Wankhede, the former Mumbai zone chief of the NCB who oversaw several high-profile cases, including those of Rhea Chakraborty and Aryan Khan.
The vigilance notice comes as the CBI investigates Wankhede for reportedly requesting a payment of Rs 25 crore from Shah Rukh Khan in order to not implicate Aryan Khan in the narcotics case.
What was mentioned in the vigilance report regarding Sameer Wankhede
1. Sameer Wankhede, as previously revealed, had six private international trips between 2017 and 2021. The locations included the United Kingdom, Ireland, Portugal, South Africa, and the Maldives.
2. For these international travels, Sameer Wankhede spent $8.75 lakh, which is much less than the real spending, according to the vigilance report.
3. Wankhede claimed 1 lakh in expenses for a 19-day journey to London, where he lived with family, according to the Indian Express.
4. Wankhede allegedly purchased a Rolex Gold watch for $17,40,000 (real price $22,05,000), and there were many invoices for the same piece.
5. According to the vigilance report, Wankhede owns four properties in Mumbai. In response, Sameer Wankhede stated that he really had six homes in Mumbai, not four, and that all of them were inherited.
‘Pooja Dadlani made a statement against Sameer Wankhede,’ according to reports.
According to sources, the CBI FIR against Sameer Wankhede, accusing the former NCB official of seeking Rs 25 crore from Shah Rukh Khan, was based on a statement made by Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani. Dadlani allegedly handed over a suitcase carrying $50,000 hours after Cordelia was raided and Aryan Khan was apprehended.
According to the CBI FIR, Sameer Wankhede granted KP Gosavi, an independent witness in the Aryan Khan case, full rein, and Aryan Khan was driven to the NCB office in Gosavi’s automobile. According to the CBI, Siddarth Shah reportedly gave charas to Arbaaz Merchant, an old acquaintance of Aryan Khan, but Siddarth was let go.
