As attacks on NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede continues, a complaint has been filed before Mumbai Police seeking FIR against Nawab Malik, Minister of Maharashtra Government. The complaint accuses Nawab Malik of obstructing the investigation in the Cruise Drug Case.
The complaint was sent via email to the police station in the western suburbs of the city. According to the complaint, Nawab Malik’s conduct in addressing the Press Conferences as well as making remarks against Sameer Wankhede, Zonal Director of NCB, amounts to “publicly influencing and defending drug cart and those accused in the drugs case”. The complaint states that all of this is done to “pressure and influence not just the prosecution agency but also the judiciary hearing the case.”
The Complaint filed against Nawab Malik seeks an FIR under sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
The Complainant Advocate Dhrutiman Joshi said that the State harassing a Public Servant and defending and promoting the Drug Mafias encourages youth to venture out in the wrong direction.
