On Monday, Sameer Wankhede, the man in charge of the drugs-on-cruise case in which Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan had spent more than 20 days behind bars, was transferred to Chennai.
The move comes just days after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) cleared Aryan in the case that sparked a major political uproar last year, leading to Wankhede’s removal from the case.
The transfer order was issued on Monday by the revenue department and the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs, both under the finance ministry. Wankhede, a 2008-batch IRS officer, was transferred with immediate effect from the Directorate General of Analytics and Risk Management (DGARM), Mumbai Zone, to the Directorate General of Taxpayers’ Services (DGTS), Chennai.
After the anti-drugs agency exonerated Aryan in the Cordelia drugs raid case, the government reportedly recommended action against Wankhede, the then-Mumbai zone head of the NCB.
