As for the case, readers would recall that Sameer Wankhede and his team had arrested seventeen high-profile names in connection to the case and had alleged seized 13 gms of cocaine, 22 pills of Ecstasy (MDMA), 21 gms of marijuana, and 5 gms of mephedrone along with Rs. 1.33 lakhs during their raid.

Followed by certain discrepancies during the raid as well as for providing witnesses with prior crime records, the NCB Mumbai team was placed under vigilance inquiry in November 2022. Post the inquiry, department ordered action against seven officers, retaining their anonymity.
