Mumbai: Maharashtra minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson Nawab Malik on Thursday alleged that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) carried out raids against some high-profile people with “malicious intentions” and that people ‘Selectively leaking information’ to implicate.

Malik told a press conference that his son-in-law Sameer Khan would approach the high court seeking quashing of the charges leveled by the NCB. Khan was recently granted bail after nine months in a drug related case. Khan was arrested by the NCB in January this year in an alleged drug case. He was released on bail last month.

The NCB had last Saturday raided a cruise off the Mumbai coast and claimed to have recovered banned drugs from there. Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan was arrested in this case. Apart from this, the NCB had last year investigated one drug case related to the murder of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and several drug related cases involving high-profile people.

Malik had last week alleged that the NCB’s raid on the cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2 was “fake” and no narcotics were found during it.

The minister had said on Wednesday, “NCB’s intentions are malicious and it is leaking only selective information to implicate people.”
