New Delhi, 11 November 2021

As per news report of NDTV,Mr Fadnavis had on November 1 accused Sameer Khan of "possessing drugs, while the investigation into the case is still going on." "The allegations were baseless and without any merits. The charge sheet filed by the Narcotics Control Bureau does not support even a single allegation levied by you. The Panchnama dated January 14 clearly says that the house was searched and no contraband/suspicious substance was found in my client's house or under his possession. But from which source you obtained such false, frivolous and baseless report is better known to you," the legal notice said. The investigation in a drug case involving Sameer Khan was resumed on Monday.
