Sameer Wankhede, the Zonal Director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been removed from the Aryan Khan drug case. He will no longer overlook the probe.

A statement released by the agency said, “A special investigation team [SIT] comprising officers from Operations Branch of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Headquarters has been constituted by the Director-General, NCB to take over a total of six cases from NCB Mumbai Zonal Unit. No officers have been removed from their present roles and will continue to assist the Operations Branch investigation as required… It is reiterated that the NCB functions across India as a single integrated agency.”

Wankhede responded, “I’ve not been removed from the investigation. It was my writ petition in court that the matter be probed by a central agency. So Aryan case and Sameer Khan case are being probed by Delhi NCB’s SIT [special investigation team]. It’s a coordination between NCB teams of Delhi and Mumbai.”
