ED Registers Case Against Sameer Wankhede In Money Laundering

In connection with a money laundering investigation, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a charge against Sameer Wankhede, the former zonal director of the Mumbai NCB, on Saturday. Three NCB officers have also been called in by the probing agency to be questioned.

A Delhi court on Wednesday served notice to Delhi Police for an action taken report (ATR) in relation to a complaint made by Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer Sameer Wankhede in which he claimed that an IPS officer had harassed him on the basis of his caste.

On July 18, 2023, Wankhede, a Scheduled Caste member, lodged a complaint with the Mumbai Police. Subsequently, the Delhi Police was tasked with taking appropriate action.

During an inquiry, he has accused IPS officer Gyaneshwar Singh of harassing him and committing atrocities that are punishable under the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, South West District, Delhi, was instructed by Additional Sessions Judge Devender Kumar Jangala of Patiala House Courts to submit an action taken report in response to Wankhede’s allegation.

Wankhede said he was entitled to legal protection and used the SC/ST statute.

Wankhede filed a FIR and the required action was not taken despite numerous requests and letters sent to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, South West District, Delhi; hence, Wankhede sought court intervention.

Wankhede’s attorney claimed that Gyaneshwar Singh humiliated Wankhede because of his caste identification during an inquiry by going beyond the parameters of his probe.

In addition, Wankhede stated that Singh had threatened to fire him and had disclosed information about the investigation to the media, which had led to a social boycott and humiliation.

Wankhede further charged Singh with coercing witnesses into making defamatory statements against him and sending nefarious letters to other organisations in an attempt to defame him and his community in public.

Wankhede approached the special court under the SC/ST statute because, despite numerous complaints, Singh has not been prosecuted, he added.
