Nawab Malik vs Sameer Wankhede: ‘NCB officer forged caste certificate’, posts photo of Wankhede's 'nikahnama'
Malik had earlier also accused Wankhede of using a fake birth certificate to secure his government job.
While Aryan Khan’s drug case hearing is underway in Bombay HC, NCB Zonal chief Sameer Wankhede's statement is being recorded by DDG NCB Gyaneshwar Singh related to extortion allegations against the senior NCB official in connection with a drug bust case in which Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra Minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik on Wednesday shared photos of Wankhede's 'nikah' on Twitter, accusing him of forging caste certificate. Malik tweeted a purported marriage photo of Wankhede, with the caption saying that "the fraud started here."
In another tweet later, he also shared what he called the 'Nikah Nama' of the first marriage of 'Sameer Dawood Wankhede.' The Minister reiterated his allegation that Wankhede, in spite of being a Muslim, had taken reservation benefits of the Scheduled Caste community to secure his job in the Indian Revenue Service.
Malik had earlier also accused Wankhede of using a fake birth certificate to secure his government job. “Birth certificate or 'nikah nama' which I tweeted, if they prove me wrong, I will quit politics, resign from my post. I am not asking him (Sameer Wankhede) to resign, but he will lose his job as per law,” Nawab Malik said as quoted by ANI.
“As per my information, an international drug mafia, his girlfriend were there at the drugs party. He has a beard. Everyone from NCB knows who that bearded person is. NCB should look for him too. We feel that he's also friends with Sameer Wankhede,” Malik was further quoted as saying.
However, Wankhede has since denied the charges saying that the minister is 'breaching his privacy.' Meanwhile, Dnyaeshwar, the father of Sameer Wankhede, said, “My son’s Nikah did take place. As per Islamic rules, a nikah can’t take place between two non-Muslims. My wife who was a Muslim probably would have referred to me as a Muslim and out of love referred to me as Dawood in the Nikahnama. However, as per all government records my name is Dnyaneshwar Wankhede.”
