Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday. The NCB raided on Saturday night in the cruise. Aryan has been interrogated over the cruise rave party. The NCB allegedly stated that ‘shocking incriminating material has been found on his phone in the form of pictures,’ this includes conversations of ‘procuring in bulk for further distribution.’ As a result, Aryan Khan has been arrested under Section 8C, 20B, 27, read with 35 of the NDPS Act. Soon after, Aryan Khan, along with Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchantt, were produced before the court for their second remand hearing in the case.
His father, Shah Rukh Khan, is receiving support from Bollywood and his fans. Many Bollywood celebrities called him and even visited his house to be with him at this challenging time. According to the TOI reports, Advocate Satish Maneshinde appeared for Aryan Khan and stated,
“My bag was searched but nothing was found. After some time, they took custody of my phone and began interrogating me. Mr. Merchantt is a friend of mine. This is a small quantity (six grams of charas). None of the other drugs was seized from us.”
He further stated,
“The main seizure is from the other accused. I am not connected to others. Even if the offences are non-bailable as argued, based on Rhea’s case, I am entitled to bail. There, Section 27A was invoked, for financing. If material is seized from other accused, that cannot be foisted on me.”
“One of the grounds is that there is the seizure of total commercial quantity in the entire case. But that can’t be used against me. According to them, I’m in the position of purchase. But nothing is recovered from me.”
Also, addressing the accusation that Aryan Khan was involved in international trafficking, his advocate Satish Maneshinde shared,
“Now they say that when I was abroad, I have certain conversations on the phone and they want to bust an international drug trafficking racket. In the last one year, I’ve gone to my university. In the entire period, I have not indulged in any drug trafficking.”
