Earlier on Sunday, a witness in the case had accused the NCB of allegedly demanding bribes from Shah Rukh Khan to release his son. The witness, Prabhakar Sail, openly stated on various TV channels that he feared a threat to his life from none other than Wankhede.
Meanwhile, the NCB vigilance unit head, DDG NR, Gyaneshwar Singh said that the agency will initiate an inquiry into the allegations of “extortion” made by the independent witness in the drug case.
“We are a professional agency and whenever we notice a thing to be enquired, we will do the inquiry,” he said. The vigilance chief added that they would continue to fight the drug menace despite the personal attacks and accusations against the anti-drug trafficking body.
