Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has removed the controversial cruise drugs case, in which Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested, and five others from the NCB’s Mumbai zonal unit headed by Sameer Wankhede and transferred their investigation to its operations unit based in Delhi, the probing agency officials said on Friday.
Senior NCB officer Sanjay Singh will now rake charge of the drugs-on-cruise case, including the five others.
The NCB had taken the action on “administrative grounds”, and as these six have “wider and inter-state ramifications”, they have been transferred to the operations unit in Delhi, NCB Deputy Director General (north-west region) Mutha Ashok Jain was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
NCB Director General (DG) S N Pradhan issued the order.
Wankhede is facing a number of personal and service-related allegations, but will continue to be the zonal director of the agency.
