Mumbai, Jan 13: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has summoned Sameer Khan, son-in-law of Maharashtra Minority Affairs Minister and senior NCP leader Nawab Malik. Sameer Khan has been summoned after the arrest of one of the owners of Mumbai’s famous “Muchhad Paanwala” in connection with an investigation into drug mafia-celebrities nexus. Sameer Nawab is the husband of Malik’s daughter Nilofar.
NCB has found a transaction of Rs 20,000 on Google Pay between British citizen Karan Sajni and Sameer Khan, which can be linked to the purchase of drugs. The report states that Sameer Khan has been called to verify the same. On Tuesday, NCB released Ramkumar son of one of the four siblings. Tiwari and “Muchad Panwala” co-owner Jaishankar Tiwari arrested. He was arrested after a long grilling session.
Both Ramkumar’s arrest and summon to Sameer were on the verge of revelation, accusing “Muchhad Paanwala” as a narcotics customer during an interrogation of Sajanani in a drug case. Sajni, who has been living in the country for the past one year, was merged with Bollywood actress and her sister Rahila Furniturewala last week.
“Muchhad Paanwala” at Kemps Corner, near Malabar Hill, named after Panditashree Shyamacharan Tiwari, the founder of Tiwarpur in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, is one of the top paan vendors in Mumbai.
