The FIR was filed on Saturday night on the complaint of State Excise Department official Shankar Gogavale who alleged that Wankhede was below 18 years of age in 1996-97 while obtaining a license for Sadguru Bar in the city.
Thane collector has issued an order to cancel the licence of the bar.
As per the FIR, the former zonal NCB director was not eligible to do these agreements but he claimed to be a major on a Stamp paper in his agreement deed for Sadguru Hotel of Thane.
Notably, NCP leader and Maharashtra Minister had also accused Wankhede of obtaining the license of the hotel while he was a minor.
