Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) registered a money laundering case against former Mumbai NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede on the basis of a corruption FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). 

Wankhede allegedly came under probe agency's radar following his investigation into the drug seizure on the Cordelia cruise ship in October 2021.
