Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik said that Wankhede has been removed from a total of five cases, including the Cordelia Cruise case.
Sources in NCB also said that the vigilance team is yet to get in touch with Prabhakar Sail, who alleged that an extortion bid of Rs 25 crore was made by some agency officials, including Wankhede, to set free Aryan Khan.
The Mumbai Police's Public Prosecutor Aruna Pai assured that Wankhede would be given three working days' notice before his arrest, after which the court disposed off Wankhede's plea.
She alleged that Malik was trying to defame her and her family members.
Wankhede - who had earlier complained to the city and state police alleging threats to life - reminded Nagrale that NCB Deputy Director-General, South West Region, Mutha Ashok Jain, has already referred the latest matter (the witness' sensational revelations) to the NCB headquarters for necessary action.
The home minister's reaction came a day after Wankhede lodged a police complaint alleging that he and his team members were being 'illegally stalked' by some plainclothes policemen.
Wankhede has filed a complaint alleging his movement was being monitored and attached CCTV footage of the Oshiwara cemetery in support of his claim, the official said.
