Gosavi: Cruise ship drug bust witness Kiran Gosavi tied himself up after Sameer Wankhede’s approval? | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: Former Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) intelligence officer Ashish Ranjan Prasad, accused in the CBI case against officials in the Cordelia drug scam investigation, reportedly said IWC that the controversial witness, Kiran Gosavi, was tied up after the approval of the then BCN Area Chief Sameer wankhede. Ashish was part of the investigation team.
The CBI declined to comment on the development.
The CBI recently recorded Ashish’s statement in the case. The CBI had also examined Gosavi and a Viral Rajan who Wankhede had allegedly bought an expensive watch from in the case.
We are being investigated by CBI in a corruption and extortion case against Wankhede, Ashish, the sacked superintendent Vishwa Vijay Singh, two private persons Kiran Gosavi and Sanvile D’Souza aka Sam D’Souza for allegedly collecting Rs 50 lakh of the total demand Actor Shah Rukh Khan’s Rs 25 cr in Oct 2021 Cordelia drug case involving his son Aryan Khan.
In his statement to the CBI, Ashish is known to have told them that during the detention of the suspects from the cruise terminal, he had asked about Gosavi, Prabhakar Sail and another witness, Manish Bhanushali, a BJP worker. They reportedly told Ashish that they were at the location on Wankhede’s instructions. Ashish reportedly told the CBI in his statement that he verified his claim with Wankhede, who said he knew them. Earlier, Wankhede had claimed that he found out about Gosavi, Sail and Bhanushali on the day of the drug bust case.
It was alleged that in the internal investigation, the NCB found that the series of failures, one after another, in Aryan’s custody is proof of the fact that he intentionally compromised himself to give Kiran Gosavi a chance. The NCB subsequently dropped the case against Aryan. The audio recording of Aryan distributed by Gosavi is again a procedural lapse. A selfie of Gosavi with Aryan, hours after the attack on the cruise ship, went viral.
The NCB office CCTV team was picked up by the NCB Special Investigation Team (SET) to verify the facts of the cruise ship drug bust case. However, it was found that it has been corrupted. The DVR and HDD provided by NCB Mumbai office were different.
