Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court on Monday (February 28) deferred hearing for one week on a plea filed by Dhyandev Wankhede, father of NCB’s former Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede, which sought contempt action against Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik, while noting that the latter is already behind bars.
Dhyandev Wankhede had claimed in his contempt plea filed earlier this year that despite an undertaking given to court in December 2021, to refrain from making defamatory public comments and social media posts against the Wankhede and his family, Malik continued doing so.
A division bench of Justices S J Kathawalla and M N Jadhav had then issued a show cause notice to Malik. When the matter came up for hearing on Monday, the bench noted that Malik is already in jail following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case.
