Former Narcotics Control Bureau officer Sameer Wankhede has produced WhatsApp conversations that he purportedly had with King Khan to prove his innocence.

The officer has been accused of attempting to extort Rs 25 crore from Bollywood actor, Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) to secure the release of his son Aryan Khan in a drug case.

Amid the allegations, the Ex-NCB officer, Wankhede has attached a string of messages he claimed he exchanged with SRK in the petition he filed in the court in response to the case against him. Back in 2021, Wankhede led an NCB team on a drugs raid during which the agency arrested Khan’s son Aryan and accused him of possessing and consuming drugs.

Sameer Wankhede shares a series of screenshots of chats

Since SRK’s son has been released and the charges against him have been dropped. Wankhede is now in the dock. The Central Bureau of Investigation has accused Sameer Wankhede of trying to extort Rs 25 crore from Shah Rukh Khan to avoid implicating Aryan Khan in the now-shelved drugs case.

In response to the charges against him, Sameer Wankhede filed a petition claiming innocence. The petition includes attachments of what look like screenshots of a text conversation. At the top of those screenshots is the name ‘Shahrukh Khan’.

According to the screenshots shared by an Ex-NCB officer, SRK urged Sameer Wankhede, who was the NCB Mumbai Zonal director at the time, not to let Aryan be in jail as it would “affect and break his inner soul.”

‘I beg you’

In the series of screenshots produced by Wankhede, Shah Rukh Khan also tells the officer that Aryan doesn’t deserve to be in a jail like a hardened criminal. These are some of the messages that are seen in the chats that Sameer Wankhede has attached in his petition:

“Get your guys to go slow for Gods sake. I swear I will stand by you at all times to come and assist you with what all you are trying to achieve good. It’s a man’s promise and you know me enough to know I am good for it. I beg you to please have mercy in me and my family. We are a simple set of people and my son has been a bit wayward, but he doesn’t deserve being in a jail like a hardened criminal. You also know that. Please have a heart man, please I beg you.”

“I beg you man, please don’t let him be in that jail. He will break as a human being. His spirit will be destroyed because of some vested people. You promised you will reform my child not put him in a place where he may come out completely battered and broken.”

“If in any way without losing your integrity as an officer of law, you can help with whatever manner possible please. I will always be indebted. I don’t know the technicalities but if the department in charge feels all is ok and to your satisfaction. If then your authority furnishes a ‘ short reply ‘ with whatever conditions your team may have. I promise you whatever cooperation you would need from him will be done to the best of his abilities. Just please consider this request favourably it will be a huge favour because the family just wants him home, and not get stamped with having been a convict in a notorious prison. It will really help with his future and that’s why I am making this, beyond reasonable request as a father. I hope you consider it please, for his sake.”

‘Please tell them to go easy’

“Please tell them to go easy man and let me get my son home. Please. There is nothing more I can say or do but beg you. You have noticed my behaviour through all this. You know I would never stand by anything against what you are doing. I believed it when you said you are thinking of Aryan as your own and want to make him a better person. I haven’t done anything to not help my son get that reformation. I haven’t been in press. I haven’t made a statement. I have just believed in your goodness. Please please don’t let me down as a father.”

“As a good man why would you subject him to this for some selfish people doing what they are doing. I promise you I will go to them and beg them to not say another word in front of you. Will use everything in my power to make sure they listen and retract whatever they have said. I promise you I will do all of it and won’t shirk away from begging them to stop. But please send my son home. You also know in your heart it’s been a bit too harsh for him by now. Please please I beg you as a father.”
