CBI has summoned fashion model Munmun Dhamicha for questioning in the probe against Sameer Wankhede. Munmun Dhamicha is the same woman who was arrested on the cruise ship with Aryan Khan.
In 2021, Sameer Wankhede, a former NCB zonal officer, arrested Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamicha from a cruise ship on charges of taking drugs. However, later Sameer Wankhede himself got caught in this case. Sameer is accused of taking money in exchange for leaving Aryan. There are also allegations against him that he investigated the Aryan Khan case without taking his senior officers into cognizance.
Along with Munmun Dhamicha, one of her roommates Soumya Singh also came under the scanner of NCB. A rolling paper (drugs) was also recovered from his bag. Although the NCB had released her.
Now the CBI is apprehensive as to how Saumya was released despite getting the drugs. There may have been some settlement in lieu of leaving them. To get answers to all these questions, CBI has sent summons to Munmun. CBI will record Munmun’s statement today i.e. on Thursday.
Munmun Dhamicha had moved the special court in May. Munmun appealed to the court, he should be discharged from this case. He said that the way Aryan got a clean chit, he should be treated equally. According to Munmun, he was made an accused in this case without any reason.
According to a Times of India report, Intelligence Officer Ashish Ranjan Prasad told that whatever happened to Aryan Khan was a setup. Ashish Ranjan Prasad revealed that Sameer Wankhede had already sent the witnesses to the raid (cruiseship) place.
In the CBI case, Sameer has been accused of demanding Rs 25 crore to release Aryan Khan. For this he had given the responsibility to a person named KP Gosavi. The case was fixed for Rs 18 crore to release Aryan. It is written in the CBI FIR that Sameer Wankhede gave full exemption to KP Gosavi and his associate D’Souza to extort Rs 25 crore from Aryan’s family. Later this amount was fixed at Rs 18 crore.
Both Gosavi and D’Souza together took a commission of Rs 50 lakh but later a part of the amount was returned. Let us inform that CBI raided the house of former NCB chief Sameer Wankhede on Friday, May 12. The agency raided a total of 29 locations in Mumbai, Delhi, Ranchi and Kanpur.
