This time, the minister has raised the question of Sameer Wankhede, the case’s lead investigator.

Earlier, the Maharashtra minister posted a video showing the NCB releasing 3 persons following raids on a luxury cruise. “NCB’s Sameer Wankhede stated that 8-10 persons (including Aryan Khan) were apprehended following the cruise operation. However, the truth is that 11 persons were taken into custody. “3 persons were later released: Rishabh Sachdeva, Prateek Gaba, and Amir Furniturewala,” he was reported saying.
