New Delhi: Amid allegation of payoff in the drugs case involving Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) zonal director Sameer Wankhede on Monday reached Delhi.

While speaking to the media here, Wankhede said, “I have not been summoned. I have come here for a different purpose. All the allegations against me are baseless.”

Earlier in the day, Wankhede had in a special court said that he and his family were being targeted and are ready for a probe into allegations against him.

Two affidavits have been filed in the case — one by NCB and another by Wankhede.
