Taking to Twitter, Malik addressed the NCB chief as ‘Sameer Dawood Wankhede‘, and asked “Is your sister-in-law Harshada Dinanath Redkar involved in the drug business? You must answer because her case is pending before the Pune court.”
The minister, who is often asked to give ‘proof’ for his various allegations, went ahead and shared a screenshot of the alleged case and said, “Here is the proof.”

Reacting to the allegations, Sameer Wankhede said in a statement to news agency, “I wasn’t even in service when the case happened in Jan 2008. I married Kranti Redkar in 2017, then how am I associated with the case anyway?”
On Sunday, Malik also claimed that the purported cruise ship “rave” party was a plot to “kidnap” Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan to ask for a ransom. He claimed that Wankhede was part of this conspiracy that was plotted well in advance.
Speaking to reporters here, Malik claimed that Mohit Bharatiya, former president of Mumbai BJP’s youth wing, was the “mastermind” of this conspiracy. He also alleged that an amount of Rs 25 crore was sought but the deal was finalised at Rs 18 crore and a sum of Rs 50 lakh was given. However, the deal got spoilt because the selfie NCB’s witness K P Gosavi posted with Aryan Khan, after his arrest.
