However, as per the report by NDTV, Wankhede has denied any wrongdoing, saying that he would give "a fitting reply".

For the uninitiated, over the last few days, Malik has been criticising Wankhede, who had supervised a raid on a cruise liner off the Mumbai coast earlier this month that led to the alleged recovery of drugs and arrest of superstar Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan.

Two days back, the NCP leader had dubbed the officer as "bogus" and asserted that once "proof" against him is out, he cannot remain in government service for even one day.

Notably, Malik's son-in-law Sameer Khan had been arrested by the NCB on January 13 this year for alleged possession of drugs. He had got bail in September.
