If your drive password is compromised, the filesystem is exposed, so in
theory is possible to retrieve the content of the file, as if it was on a
non encrypted disk.

So, in my opinion, yes, a safe remove command is necessary and with all the
passes you may need (which depend on the confidentiality of the file).
