Narcotics Control Bureau zonal director Sameer Wankhede said Nawab Malik’s letter was a joke and a lie. Sameer Wankhede added that Nawab Malik can do whatever he wants, “the content of the letter is all wrong”.
“This is all lies and jokes. Let him [Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik] do whatever he can. These are all fabricated [charges],” said Sameer Wankhede, responding to allegations levelled by the senior Nationalist Congress Party leader.
Addressing a press conference, Nawab Malik said, “Sameer Wankhede sought the CDR (call detail record) of my daughter Nilofer. However, Mumbai Police refused to provide them. I have information that Sameer Wankhede, through two private individuals, is intercepting calls. My phones were also tapped. Wankhede is tapping the phones of top personalities, including Bollywood celebs.”
The NCP leader also claimed that he received a letter from an unnamed NCB official of 36 fraudulently filed cases by the agency. Malik said some cases mentioned in the letter pertain to Bollywood celebrities.
“I have forwarded the letter to the chief minister, DG, and others. There are 36 fraudulently filed cases mentioned and these should be investigated. The Mumbai Police Crime Branch should probe this. Sameer Wankhede is using the bureau to make thousands of crores,” Nawab Malik said.
“The way things are mentioned in the anonymous letter are related to inside matters, hence there is a scope to believe that it is genuine. I am not saying that punish them immediately, but this certainly should be inquired,” Nawab Malik further said.
