After former Maharashtra Chief Minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis stated he will disclose evidence of Nawab Malik’s ties to the underworld soon after Diwali, the Maharashtra Minister remarked he should not wait.
Malik said on Monday that Fadnavis has ties to Jaydeep Rana, who is charged with drug trafficking, and posted a photo of Amruta Fadnavis with the suspected drug dealer
Nawab Malik, the Maharashtra minister who has been relentless in his assaults on Sameer Wankhede and the NCB’s handling of the Aryan Khan narcotics case, with jabs at former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis thrown in for good measure, has promised to unveil additional “secrets” after the Diwali holiday.
Nawab Malik has been blowing up bomb after bomb in the lead-up to Diwali, but he has stated that he will explode another after Diwali.
In the meantime, his tweet “To everyone, a happy Diwali… The Lalit (a luxurious hotel in Mumbai) conceals many secrets… see you on Sunday “Mr. Wankhede and Mr. Fadnavis are facing additional claims and accusations this weekend, according to the NCP leader, who tweeted cryptically Wednesday morning.
Mr. Malik claimed that Fadnavis was once in a music video financed by a drug smuggler; the video featured Mr. Fadnavis’ wife, Amrutha Fadnavis, as the lead singer.
Mr. Fadnavis responded: “I’m just waiting for Diwali to come to an end… He lighted a small firecracker before Diwali, but I’m going to light a big one after the celebration,” he teased, adding, “Those who have ties to the underworld should not speak about me… I’ll provide evidence.”
Earlier, Sameer Wankhede was also charged by Nawab Malik for wearing luxury apparel, including shoes costing 2 lakh and watches worth 20 lakh, which a normal person would not be able to afford.
Mr. Wankhede’s sister, Yasmeen Wankhede, a lawyer, has connections to a known drug smuggler, according to the minister, who produced WhatsApp exchanges to back up his claim.
Sameer Wankhede, the primary investigator in the Aryan Khan narcotics investigation, is accused by a witness of receiving an Rs 8 crore bribe.
An internal investigation into the allegations has been launched by the Narcotics Control Bureau.
