Actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan was today given clean chit by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the drugs-on-cruise case, due to "lack of sufficient evidence".
The NCB said no drugs were found on Aryan Khan and there was no "substantial evidence" to charge him and five others.
Fourteen other accused have been charged by the anti-drugs agency.
Reacting to the development, Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik's daughter Sana Malik Shaikh tweeted, "Farziwada exposed! Truth always prevails!".
The office of Nawab Malik, tweeted, "Now that #AryanKhan and 5 others get a clean chit. Will #NCB take action against #SameerWankhede his team and the private army? Or will it shield the culprits?"
After the arrest of Aryan Khan last year in October, Nawab Malik had accused Sameer Wankhede, the Narcotics Control Bureau's former Mumbai zonal director, of wrongly framing people in drugs cases, and securing government job by forging his documents.
Nawab Malik had alleged that the raid onboard a Mumbai cruise was "forgery", and it was carried out at the behest of the BJP to frame Aryan Khan.
Further referring to the Sushant Singh Rajput case, the Maharashtra minister said that attempts were made to malign the name of Bollywood.
Mr Wankhede was removed from the Aryan Khan drugs case in November last year amid allegations of links to a Rs 8 crore payoff. Sameer Wankhede, however, had alleged the minister's accusations betrayed a grudge against him for arresting his son-in-law Sameer Khan
Mr Malik was arrested on February 23, 2022 in connection with a money laundering case linked to the fugitive terrorist Dawood Ibrahim.
