Maharashtra Minister Posts Photo Of Anti-Drugs Officer's 'Nikah'

Nawab Malik posted the tweet along with photo of Sameer Wankhade and his first wife Dr Shabana Quraishi.

Mumbai (Maharashtra):

Maharashtra Cabinet Minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik on Wednesday posted purported picture of the ‘nikah’ of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede.

The NCP leader also posted a screenshot of the ‘Nikah Nama’ of Sameer Wankhede with his first wife Dr Shabana Qureshi.

“Photo of sweet couple Sameer Dawood Wankhede and Dr Shabana Qureshi” Mr Malik said in a tweet along with a photograph.

In a subsequent tweet, the minister said, “Presenting shortly the ‘Nikah Nama’ of the first marriage of ‘Sameer Dawood Wankhede’.”

This follows a day after Mr Malik shared a letter he had received apparently from an NCB official that claimed that Mr Wankhede had violated rules and framed people in false cases to extort money.

Mr Malik had earlier also accused Mr Wankhede of using a fake birth certificate to secure his government job.

He had shared the birth certificate of Mr Wankhede on Twitter saying “Sameer Dawood Wankhede’s fraud started from here.” Following this Mr Wankhede said he will fight Mr Malik legally.

Mr Wankhede had previously said that all the allegations are false and that he was being targeted and is ready for a probe into allegations against him.

NCB on Tuesday also denied to probe the anonymous letter received by Mr Malik which he forwarded to NCB Director General SN Pradhan.

NCB said that “no action” will be taken as per the guidelines of the Central Vigilance Commission. “No action will be initiated on the anonymous letter (containing allegations against NCB Mumbai Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede) forwarded by Maharashtra Minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik to Director General of NCB as per guidelines of Central Vigilance Commission,” said the probe agency.

Sameer Wankhede is investigating the Mumbai cruise ship drugs case in which Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan’s son has been arrested.
