Earlier on Tuesday, the Bombay High Court issued notice to Maharashtra Cabinet Minister and NCP leader Nawab Malik with regard to the statements against the Narcotics Control Bureau’s Mumbai unit chief Sameer Wankhede’s family. The High Court also asked the NCP leader to file an affidavit on why action should not be taken against him for ‘wilfully breaching’ its earlier orders, with regard to the statements against Dnyandev Wankhede and his family despite giving an undertaking in court that he won’t do it. Malik in November gave an undertaking before a division bench of Bombay High Court that he would not tweet against Sameer Wankhede till the court hears the matter next.
