In the dark realm of Bollywood comes another sudden death. Reminiscent of witnesses dying or disappearing in the hit-and-run case against Salman Khan, a key eyewitness who had testified for the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) that actor Shah Rukh Khan’s Aryan Khan was indeed a consumer of contraband, Prabhakar Sail, has died of cardiac arrest. According to his lawyer, he suffered a fatal heart attack at his residence in Mumbai. He was 36 years old.

Prabhakar was among the panch witness of the NCB in the case of the infamous rave party on a cruise where Aryan Khan had been caught. Bodyguard to KP Gosavi, who is another witness in the drug bust case, Prabhakar made headlines when he had filed an affidavit where he made serious allegations of a payoff to then NCB zonal chief Sameer Wankhede in the drug raid that led to the arrest of Aryan Khan.

Sail claimed that he had overheard a phone conversation about a demand of Rs 25 crore from Shah Rukh Khan in the case to let off his Aryan Khan. Prabhakar Sail had claimed that, on 3 October, while escorting Gosavi, he had overheard him discussing a demand of Rs 25 crore and his willingness to ‘settle’ at Rs 18 crore, of which Rs 8 crore was to be allegedly paid to Wankhede.

Gosavi’s selfie with Aryan Khan had gone viral after the Goa-bound cruise ship was busted.

His employer Kiran P Gosavi had a conversation with one Sam D’Souza, Sail had claimed in his affidavit. “You put a bomb of 25 crores and let’s settle at 18 final, because we have to give 8 crores to Sameer Wankhede,” Gosavi told a certain person named Sam D’Souza,” the affidavit read.

In his statement to the police, Sail had mentioned that he had interacted with Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani too. Following his allegations, NCB had initiated a vigilance inquiry against Sameer Wankhede.

Wankhede had denied all allegations against him amid a political row where NCP politician Nawab Khan — now in jail — had begun attacking him through a series of press conferences. The officer was later transferred from the department.

A few months after his release on bail, Aryan Khan was exempted from appearing at the NCB office every Friday. Earlier this week, a special NDPS court had granted the SIT of NCB an additional 60 days to submit its charge sheet in the cruise drugs bust case.
