Sameer Malik was arrested in January 2021 in drug transaction cases. Now NCB found evidence of transactions of Rs. 20000 with an accused in another drug case and it has issued summons to him to appear before the agency. He was arrested in January over possession of drugs, he was granted bail in September 2021.
Mr Malik has alleged that Wankhede had been involved in extortion of Bollywood stars, forging a caste certificate, and arranging a "fake" case to entrap SRK.
