Aryan Khan case

Aryan Khan case

The witness in the drug trial of megastar Shah Rukh Khan's son has leveled shocking charges of conspiracy and payment against drug officer Sameer Wankhede and KP Gosavi, the alleged private investigator whose selfie with Aryan Khan went viral. Mr Wankhede denied all charges and said he would provide "a fitting reply".

In an affidavit, Prabhakar Sail - who said he was a personal bodyguard for KP Gosavi - claimed he was in a car and heard KP Gosavi talking to a Sam D'Souza of about 18 crore of the 8 crores on Sameer Wankhede being paid . That same evening, KP Gosavi, Sam D'Souza and Shah Rukh Khan's manager Pooja Dadlani had a 15-minute meeting in a car. He also said he got the money from KP Gosavi and gave it to Sam D'Souza.

Mr Sail, the first of nine witnesses named by the agency in an Oct 6th press release, said KP Gosavi was missing and feared for his life, which is why he made the affidavit. A guard was placed against KP Gosavi. In the affidavit, Prabhakar Sail mentioned the day the cruise ship was broken into. He said he was present near the cruise ship embarkation point on October 2 and was asked to identify some people on board. He said he received photos on WhatsApp to help identify them.

"At about 10.30 pm I was called (by) KP Gosavi in the boarding area and I saw Aryan Khan in one of the cabins at the cruise boarding area. I saw one girl, Munmun Dhamecha and a few others with NCB officials," he said in the affidavit. After Aryan Khan and the others were taken to the NCB office, he said that Gosavi and Sameer Wankhede asked him to sign blank papers.

Later, he said, KP Gosavi met a Sam D'Souza who then got into separate cars and drove to Lower Parel. "Till such time we reached Lower Parel KP Gosavi was talking to Sam on the phone and stated that you put a bomb of 25 crores and let's settle at 18 final because we have to give 8 crores to Sameer Wankhede," the affidavit read.That same evening, KP Gosavi, Sam D'Souza and Shah Rukh Khan's manager Pooja Dadlani met in a car for a 15-minute meeting.

Prabhakar Sail said he was also asked to withdraw money near a hotel. He got two bags of money from people in a white car, which he delivered to Sam D'Souza at the Trident Hotel. When the money was counted it was 38 lakh, not 50 lakh, he said in an affidavit.

Agency sources made allegations "baseless", questioning if money had changed hands, "why would someone be in jail". Alleging that the claims were made "just to malign the (agency's) image", a source said, "There are CCTV cameras in the office and nothing of this sort happened"Officials also unofficially said that she had never touched Prabhakar Sail before October 2 and that she had  "no idea about who he is".

"This affidavit can be taken to NDPS court and we will give our response there," a source said. Aryan Khan has not yet received bail for this. The agency told the court that his conversations on WhatsApp indicated that he was in contact with an international drug cartel.

Maharashtra minister and Nationalist Congress Party leader Nawab Malik alleged that Sameer Wankhede was in the Maldives during the lockdown and blackmailed Bollywood characters present there. He also alleged that the official acted on behalf of the BJP to discredit the Maharashtra government. Mr Wankhede denied the allegations, saying he had traveled to the Maldives with his children, "with proper permission, legally and with my own money".
