Rakhi Sawant falls in legal trouble as former NCB officer Sameer Wankhede files defamation case against the actress for Rs 11 Lakh – Find out why

In his suit, Wankhede refers to Khan’s 2023 interview with a broadcaster, stating that he made claims that were a ‘deliberate lie’ and ‘concocted, baseless’.

Actor Rakhi Sawant is the target of a defamation lawsuit filed by Sameer Wankhede, the former zonal head of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Mumbai. Additionally, Wankhede filed a complaint against attorney Kaashif Ali Khan, alleging that the two had mocked him in public.

Wankhede cites Kaashif Ali Khan’s 2023 interview with a broadcaster in his case, alleging that he made statements that were “concocted, baseless” and “a deliberate lie.”


According to the lawsuit, the statements implied that Wankhede “targets celebrities” and is “media addicted.” Wankhede claimed to have had a “blotless career throughout his life in government services” as an official with the Indian Revenue Service.

The case has reportedly been submitted to the Dindoshi City Civil Court, located in Malad, Mumbai. The NCB officer, who was under investigation for detaining Aryan Khan during a cruise ship raid, said in his appeal that the Bigg Boss season 1 contestant and her attorney had tried to slander and harm his name.

He sought Rs 11 lakh in damages and compensation. Khan, according to Wankhede, had also posted similar content on his Instagram account, which Sawant shared, further harming his reputation. Model Munmun Dhamecha, who was arrested in 2021 by a squad under Wankhede’s leadership during a cruise narcotics bust, is represented by Khan.

Following her ex-husband Adil Khan Durrani’s second marriage to Somy Ali, Rakhi Sawant made headlines recently. In 2022, the divorced couple tied the knot in a conventional wedding. But they broke up a year later after a contentious divorce that included accusations. The couple filed about seven complaints against each other, going to considerable measures to air their unwashed laundry in public.
