This comes after NCP leader and Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik’s claim that Wankhede is a Muslim by birth and his real name is ‘Sameer Dawood Wankhede’.
Malik has also released what he claimed was the birth certificate of Sameer Wankhede and alleged that the latter had forged documents.
On the other hand, Wankhede’s father refuted allegations of Nawab Malik about his religion. Malik had said Wankhede senior’s real name is Dawood Wankhede and not Dnyandev Wankhede.
“I do not understand Urdu, hence I am not aware what my name was written in their documents (nikah nama). She (my late wife) might have mentioned my name as Dawood affectionately. People do call each other with different names out of love,? he told reporters quotes PTI.
He said all the government documents mentioned his name as Dnyandev Wankhede. “When the state government recruited me, they must have done some verification as well,” he added.
Sameer Wankhede, who is probing actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s drugs case, said he will fight Malik legally.
Wankhede had previously said that all the allegations are false and that he was being targeted and is ready for a probe into allegations against him.
