Now, according to a report, the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) agent is being hounded by bigwigs for doing his job as an investigator honestly. The report further stated that an NCB source said Wankhed was “pointed out” for harassment given the people he arrested or interviewed during the investigation.
The NCB source told Rediff: ‘The decision to arrest Aryan Khan was a consensual decision, not a one man command which was followed without following the arrest procedure under the NDPS Act. was a consensus decision that included the opinion of the public prosecutor, but the media called it a one-man agenda.
Elaborating on the same, the source told the website that in such high profile cases, the decision to arrest someone is tracked through an appropriate channel. Even the highest command of the chain is involved in this and after that arrests are made.
The source also said that a month before Aryan’s arrest, Wankhede was awarded the Union Minister’s Medal for Excellence in Investigations.
NCB gave Aryan a free kick, following which the Home Office (MHA) recommended action against Wankhede for a ‘poor quality investigation’ into a drug bust on Cordelia, a cruise ship, on October 2, 2021.
