A week after a raid at a cruise ship off Mumbai coast led to the arrest of Aryan Khan, superstar Shah Rukh’s son, along with eight others, Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik this afternoon released some videos as he raised questions over the probe. He said the NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) had released three of 11 people detained initially after talking to a BJP leader, alleging collusion.
“After raid on the cruise, NCB’s Sameer Wankhede had said that 8-10 people were detained. But the truth is that 11 people were detained. Later, three people-Rishabh Sachdeva, Prateek Gaba and Amir Furniturewala were released,” Nawab Malik said today.
“We want to ask the NCB that when they had detained 11 people after cruise ship raid, then on whose directions did they release the three people? We demand NCB to reveal the facts. We think there might’ve been some talk between Sameer Wankhede and the BJP leaders,” the NCP leader further added.
“Mumbai Police Anti Narcotics cell should conduct an independent investigation into this. I will write to the Chief Minister (Uddhav Thackeray) also. If required, an enquiry commission should be set up to probe the raids,” the 62-year-old leader said.
