The Narcotics Control Bureau has transferred six of its cases from the Mumbai team to their Delhi counterparts and Mumbai cruise drugs bust case is one of them. According to some reports, IPS officer Sanjay Singh will now investigate the Aryan Khan case. As soon as this news hit the headlines the Maharashtra cabinet minister Nawab Malik took to his Twitter account and wrote, ‘Sameer Wankhede removed from 5 cases including the Aryan Khan case. There are 26 cases in all that need to be probed. This is just the beginning… a lot more has to be done to clean this system and we will do it.’ However, the anti-drugs agency later clarified in a statement that, ‘No officer or officers have been removed from their present roles & they’ll continue to assist the Operations Branch investigation as required until any specific orders are issued to the contrary.’ It further stated, ‘A Special Investigation Team comprising officers from Operations Branch of Narcotics Control Bureau Headquarters has been constituted by the Director General, NCB to take over a total of 06 cases from NCB Mumbai Zonal Unit which have national and international ramifications, in order to conduct deeper investigation to find out forward and backward linkages.’ Wankhede also responded to the rumours of his removal from the probe and told a news agency, ‘I’ve not been removed from 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. It’s a coordination between NCB teams of Delhi and Mumbai.’
