wankhede: Fearing arrest, NCB officer Wankhede moves HC | India News

MUMBAI: Maharashtra on Thursday told the Bombay high court that it would give NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede three days’ notice in case it wants to take any action against him.
The high court was hearing a petition filed by Wankhede, who feared arrest by the city police in its investigation into four complaints, including an affidavit by a witness alleging a Rs 8-crore pay off to be made to Wankhede.
The HC bench of Justices Nitin Jamdar and Sarang Kotwal said, “We are not making comments on the merits of the case.” Wankhede’s petition said, “The material on record shows that members of the ruling regime/government in the state of Maharashtra have unleashed an open tirade against the petitioner and has/have already “pronounced a decision” through television interviews, Twitter and other social media that the petitioner is guilty of offenses of corruption and hence any “investigation” conducted by any state agen-cy will be vitiated by mala fides, and would be a gross abuse of the principles of a free and fair investigation, if not an institutionalised persecution by the state.”
