Aryan skips NCB summons over 'ill health', medical reports sought
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the matter following NCB director Sameer Wankhede's removal, asked the 23-year-old to submit medical reports, official sources said on Monday.
The sources in the agency said Aryan was earlier summoned to appear before the SIT but he skipped, saying he is experiencing Covid-19-like symptoms.
The new team headed by DDG NCB Sanjay Singh on Saturday took over the cruise drugs case, which is among six cases that were being investigated by Wankhede, who is facing a departmental probe on extortion allegations.
Recently released on conditional bail, Aryan sought another date to appear before the SIT.
The NCB will take a call after it receives the medical reports, sources added.
