Sameer Wankhede death threats: Former Mumbai NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede has received death threats on social media. He gave this information to Goregaon Police Station. A non-cognisable offence was registered under section 507 (criminal intimidation by anonymous communication) of the Indian Penal Code, the official said. The cyber cell of Mumbai Police is also conducting a probe into the matter.
The Indian Revenue Service (IRS)officer Sameer Wankhede, who was accused of submitting a fake caste certificate to get a government job was cleared of the charge submitting fake caste certificate. Maharashtra's district caste certificate verification committee in its order had said the IRS officer was not a Muslim by birth and it has been proven that he belonged to Mahar caste, which is a Scheduled Caste (SC).
After receiving the committee's order, Wankhede went to a police station and filed a complaint against former Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik who had accused him of submitting fake caste certificate.
Wankhede had come into limelight following the NCB's high-profile raids in October 2021 on a Mumbai cruise after which the agency arrested actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan and 19 others, and claimed to have seized some narcotics.
