Shocker: Witness claims NCB sought bribe from SRK to release Aryan

Mumbai, Oct 24 (IANS): Sparking off a major controversy, a witness in the cruise ship rave party raid case on Sunday accused the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) of allegedly demanding bribes from Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan to release his son Aryan Khan.

The witness, Prabhakar Sail, openly stated on various TV channels that he feared a threat to his life from none other than the NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede.

The NCB has taken cognisance of the allegations of threats and bribes and a top official said that the matter will be probed.

Sail, identified as the personal bodyguard of the so-called private detective Kiran P. Gosavi, has released a signed affidavit statement and videos pertaining to the arrest of Aryan Khan and others on October 3, a day after the ship raid (October 2).

One of the 9 witnesses listed by the NCB, among other things, Sail claimed that he was made to sign 10 blank papers by the agency and now feared for his life from Wankhede.

In the affidavit, Sail has contended that he "overheard" Gosavi and Sam D'Souza discuss a deal of Rs 24 crore which they "settled" for Rs 18 crore, of which Rs 8 crore would got to Wankhede.

He said that he saw SRK's manager, Pooja Dadlani arrive at the NCB office after Aryan Khan's arrest and also witnessed her talking with Gosavi and D'Souza inside her vehicle.

Sail alleged that Gosavi directed him to collect Rs 50 lakh cash from a spot near the Indiana Hotel and asked him to give the bags to D'Souza near the Trident Hotel where he counted it to find Rs 38 lakh cash.

Reacting to the allegations, NCB Deputy Director-General, South West Region Mutha Ashok Jain said that Wankhede has "categorically denied" the allegations.

"As some of the contents of the affidavit relate to vigilance matters, I am hereby forwarding the affidavit to the Director General, NCB and requesting him for further necessary action," Jain said.

Simultaneously, chiding Sail, Jain said that since he is a witness in the case which is now sub-judice, "he needs to submit his prayer to the honourable court rather than through social media if he has anything to say".

He also said that Sail has given details about his movements and activities on October 2 (on the day of the ship raid), and "vigilance related allegations against certain persons in the affidavit which are based on overhearing" by the witness.

In the affidavit, Sail stated that Gosavi is missing and feared that the NCB officials or other people may abduct or kill him.

Gosavi, who is facing several cases, shot to focus earlier this month when Nationalist Congress Party national spokesperson and Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik made a series of exposes involving him (Gosavi) and other BJP-linked persons like Manish Bhanushali, in the NCB raids.

However, the BJP and NCB have rejected the charges by Malik, who has threatened to reveal more.

    People have lost faith in the Central Agencies and such news of Prosecution witnesses claiming over affadavit that NCB sought bribes from SRK to release Aryan should not suprise anyone given the immunity provided to all and sundry who parrot the BJP line. Private detective Kiran P. Gosavi still missing. A virtual collapse of the Judicial System. The lower Courts and the dedicated Courts of the CBI/NCB/ED/NIA are all ensuring that Bail is denied to common citizens on speculative Conspiracy theories spun by these agencies a6nd the only hope for the citizens are the High Courts and the Supreme Court.

    99% of Indians believe Aryan Khan is the target just because of his name and his father where nothing has found from his possession and it is also a fact that who were those behind who trapped him and moreover everyone knows what development has been carried out so far on the consignment of 3000 kg at Mundra port.

    All games are playing now to spoil NCB efforts. Whole state govt behind this star kid to save. Shame. Wait for some day some national media will start program saying Hafim Ganja has health benifits. And will start campaign against laws of Narcotics. This happened with Sedition law also. When it suits them its good law, if not its bad law.

    To cover up one lie BJP has to fabricate 100 lies which is bound to expose something somewhere none other than its own activist. Aryan’s arrest was all pre-planned staged drama without evidence. Only misuse of power and heavy handedness of govt sponsored caged agency to harass, extort and for media campaign. Why isn’t Adani dealt the same way????…Different law and different yard stick used selectively to cover up govt’ s under hand drug deals and peddling. Those same druggies will expose drug dealings of the govt.

    There is no doubt that smuggling always been happening in this country. It was always been in small quantities for Drugs, Gold or Currency. But, the rate at which today it is happening is unbelievable. If the smugglers are bringing in such massinve quantities like 21,000cr worth drugs in one go, it means someone at the highest level of Central Govt level is involved as others wont dare. Smugglers must be having multiple consignments, extreemly big network, high level connection and massive amount of black money. Definately as end customers only filthy rich can afford to have such expensive habbits. By the way DRI, caught 21k crore drugs, not NCB. Looks like NCB wants to divert the issue, as its failure is quite appauling.
