Sameer Wankhede’s bar licence under lens of excise department | Mumbai News – Times of India


MUMBAI: NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede is now on the radar of the state excise department for allegedly securing a bar and restaurant licence despite the fact that he was a minor on the date of issuance of said licence. A senior excise official confirmed to TOI that information has been sought from Thane collector and Thane excise superintendent on how Wankhede procured the licence on October 27, 1997, when he was not even 18 years old against the required age of 21. “Once we receive the information, we will decide the course of action against Wankhede as well as the officials who issued the licence in violation of rules,” the excise official said, adding that then Wankhede’s father, Dnyandev, was an inspector in the state excise department.
Last week, TOI had reported that Wankhede has a licence for Sadguru bar and restaurant in Vashi. In fact, Wankhede had even confirmed to TOI that the licence was in his name and ever since he joined the all-India service, the power of attorney was given to his father.
