  • Sameer Wankhede, an IRS officer, approached the Bombay High Court regarding the alleged ₹25 crore extortion case linked to the arrest of Aryan Khan.
  • Allegations against Wankhede include bribery demand, underreported expenses, financial irregularities, and targeting Aryan Khan.
  • In his recent press report, he denied all allegations, citing patriotism and a complaint against NCB official Gyaneshwar Singh.

Sameer Wankhede, an IRS officer known for his involvement in high-profile cases related to drugs in Bollywood, has taken his legal battle to the Bombay High Court regarding the alleged extortion case linked to the arrest of Aryan Khan, son of renowned Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, in 2021. 

Wankhede claims that the CBI’s actions against him are driven by revenge. An urgent hearing has been scheduled for his appeal. Wankhede had previously avoided a CBI summons by obtaining protection from arrest granted by the Delhi High Court until May 22. The Delhi High Court also permitted him to seek further relief from the Bombay High Court. In addition, Wankhede has requested a cross-FIR against NCB deputy director-general Gyaneshwar Singh.

Here are some details on Sameer Wankhede’s background and some key events related to his career, and the recent allegations against him:

Wankhede gained prominence for his role in investigating drug-related cases in Bollywood, starting with the Rhea Chakraborty case, where the NCB probed the drug angle in the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. He later led the investigation into the Aryan Khan case in 2021.

Several allegations were levelled against Wankhede during his tenure as the Mumbai zone chief, which concluded in 2021. After being posted in Chennai, Wankhede remained relatively out of the public eye, with reports suggesting that he took a significant number of days off.

Wankhede returned to the spotlight when the CBI filed an FIR against him, accusing him of demanding a bribe of ₹25 crores from Shah Rukh Khan to prevent charges from being framed against Aryan Khan. The alleged bribe was reportedly facilitated through KP Gosavi, an independent witness, and Wankhede was given free rein in handling the Aryan Khan case.

The CBI further alleged that Wankhede had underreported his expenses during his six foreign trips over the past five years. In addition to financial irregularities involving Wankhede and his wife, actor Kranti Redkar, he has also been accused of targeting Aryan Khan in the drugs case while allowing the actual possessor of drugs at the cruise party to escape arrest.

Pooja Dadlani, Shah Rukh Khan’s manager, allegedly handed a bag containing ₹50 lakhs to KP Gosavi shortly after Aryan Khan’s arrest. Dadlani’s statement played a significant role in the CBI’s case against Wankhede. Wankhede vehemently denied all allegations and claimed that he was facing consequences for his patriotism.

Wankhede argued that the FIR against him was because he had lodged a complaint against Gyaneshwar Singh for humiliating him over caste. He alleged that Gyaneshwar Singh manipulated the CBI’s actions against him to help Aryan Khan avoid charges in the drug case, asserting that senior officials, including Singh, were aware of Aryan Khan’s arrest from the beginning.

Sameer Wankhede’s move to approach the Bombay High Court marks a significant development in the ongoing legal battle surrounding the Aryan Khan case and the allegations against him.
