Mumbai: Former NCB's Mumbai zone Sameer Wankhede is reported to have submitted a fake caste document to get a government job on a category reserved for Dalits.
Sources that look into his alleged unscrupulous actions after a raid on a cruise ship for drugs said that he will also face punitive actions for the 'shoddy investigation' into the drugs-case that had seen Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan and others in jail for over a month besides a case against submitting fake document.
Wankhede was investigating the Mumbai drugs-on-cruise case after the raid, during when the Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik unleashed salvos of allegations against Wankhede, including that he was a Muslim but grabbed a government job by duping authorities.
Following which, Wankhede presented a certificate to the National Commission for Scheduled Castes in November, claiming to be the original certificate which had been submitted before the government to prove he was a Dalit.
Now Aryan Khan was cleared off all charges against him and the government has urged the competent authority to initiate punitive action against Wankhede not just for the irregularities in the investigation but faking certificate.
Sources today explained five irregularities in the investigation conducted by Mr Wankhede after the drugs raid.
No videography was done during the search operation and there were lapses in analysing the contents of Aryan Khan's phone, since the chats do not link him with the case, the sources said.
No medical test was done to prove consumption of drugs and one witness even turned hostile, telling the special investigation team that he was made to sign on blank papers, the sources said, adding two more witnesses told the investigation team that they weren't at the location at the time of the NCB raid.
