The security cover of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede, who is currently supervising the investigations in the high-profile Mumbai cruise drug bust case, has been increased after he alleged that two cops were monitoring his movements.
As per Wankhede’s new security arrangement, a number of armed bodyguards, from Mumbai Police and NCB, have been added to his security fleet. His official vehicle has also been changed due to security reasons.
Sameer Wankhede had filed a complaint on Monday that he was being followed by two Mumbai cops when he visited the cemetery where his mother has been buried, according to sources. The two police officials are reportedly from the Oshiwara Police station and they allegedly went to the cemetery to take the CCTV footage to monitor Sameer Wankhede’s movement.
Sameer Wankhede is currently supervising the investigation in the high-profile Mumbai cruise drug bust involving Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan. He has also been a part of multiple high-profile raids in the past, including the Sushant Singh Rajput drug case and several other cases involving high-profile individuals.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale has ordered an inquiry into Sameer Wankhede’s complaint, news agency PTI reported.
As per the city police commissioner’s orders, the inquiry report is expected in seven days.
