MUMBAI: Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik on Friday asked if the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) will take action against IRS official Sameer Wankhede and "his private army" now that it has given a clean chit to Aryan Khan in an alleged drug seizure case.

While Malik is in prison in an alleged money laundering case, his comment was published through the Twitter account 'Office of Nawab Malik'.

"Now that Aryan Khan and 5 others get a clean chit. Will NCB take action against Sameer Wankhede his team and the private army? Or will it shield the culprits? " said the tweet, accompanied by hashtags `Farziwada exposed' and 'Truth prevails'.

Malik, a Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader, was the first to question the raid conducted by Wankhede, then zonal director of the NCB in Mumbai, on a cruise ship last October during which Aryan and others were arrested.

The minister had launched a veritable campaign against Wankhede, accusing him of implicating Aryan in a false case to extort money from his father, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Malik also questioned the genuineness of the scheduled caste certificate of Wankhede, an Indian Revenue Service official.
