wankhede: No caste certificate issued in Wankhede’s name: Panel | India News – Times of India

MUMBAI: The Mumbai district caste verification committee has informed Pune-based RTI activist Nitin Sanjay Yadav that as per its records, no caste validity certificate has been issued in the name of NCB official Sameer Wankhede.
Invoking provisions of the RTI Act, Yadav had sought information from the committee on documents submitted by Wankhede for securing the caste certificate. He had sought certified copies of all relevant documents submitted by Wankhede. Replying to the RTI plea, public information officer and member secretary of the committee, Sunita Mate, said when the records were examined, it was found no caste certificate has been issued in the name of Wankhede.
The panel’s reply given to Yadav assumes importance as NCP member Nawab Malik has claimed that Wankhede belongs to the Muslim community but had obtained an SC certificate for securing a job in the central government. On a complaint filed by activist Manoj Sansare, the committee has already initiated a probe into the caste certificate of Wankhede.
