- The Bollywood actor has denied allegations of supplying drugs to Aryan Khan
New Delhi: Mumbai Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Area Director Sameer Wankhede, who has cultivated the image of a tough officer, arrested Bollywood actor Ananya Panday on the second day of his interrogation in connection with Aryan Khan’s drug case.
Panday was reportedly reprimanded for arriving late at the CBN office on Friday.
She was summoned by NCB for questioning in the ongoing cruise drug case at 11 a.m., but was unable to come to the office until around 4 p.m. with her father Chunky Panday.
Sources told ANI that Wankhede reprimanded Ananya saying the investigative agency office was not a “production house”.
“You were asked to come at 11:00 a.m. and you are coming now. The officers are not sitting here, just waiting for you… This is not your production house, this is the office of a central agency Come when you are called,” sources quoted Wankhede as saying.
She was also summoned by the investigative agency on Thursday and during questioning, the actor denied allegations of supplying or using drugs.
According to the NCB sources, Ananya denied the allegation of supplying drugs to Aryan Khan and said she had never used drugs.
NCB sources told ANI that conversations recovered from Aryan Khan’s cell phone reveal that she helped supply drugs to SRK’s son on three occasions providing him with the number of drug dealers in 2018- 19.
She was again summoned to appear before the NCB for questioning in the ongoing cruise drug case on October 25.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra BJP leader Chandrakant Patil today said Wankhede should take ‘necessary steps’ to make NCP leader Nawab Malik realize the ‘consequences’.
Malik targeted Wankhede alleging he extorted money from people in the film industry in the Maldives and Dubai.
Refuting Malik’s extortion allegations, Wankhede said he would take a “legal course” against the NCP leader.
