Sameer Wankhede challenges ED's money laundering charge in Bombay HC

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 11 Feb 2024, 04:19 pm

Mumbai/UNI: Former Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) zonal director Sameer Wankhede has moved the Bombay High Court challenging the money laundering case registered against him by the Directorate of Enforcement (ED).

The ED registered a money laundering case against Wankhede based on an FIR by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) alleging that the officer demanded Rs 25 crore from actor Shah Rukh Khan to have his son's name excluded in the Cordelia cruise drug bust case.

In his plea, Wankhede, a 2008 batch IRS officer of the Customs and Indirect Taxes cadre, has alleged that the ED case is a “counter blast” to his complaint against NCB's Deputy Director General Gyaneshwar Singh.

He has also claimed the case "smacks of malice and vendetta” and urged the court to grant protection from any coercive action by the central agency.

He has also sought that the ED be restrained from conducting the probe until the HC decides on his second petition, in which he has challenged the case registered against him by the CBI.

The petition is likely to come up for hearing before a division bench of Justices PD Naik and NR Borkar on February 15.
