Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan has been acquitted by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the drug-on-cruise case. After drugs were found on a cruise ship off Mumbai last year, the anti-drugs agency filed a 6,000-page charge sheet naming 14 accused. An official charge has not been brought against Aryan Khan, who was arrested following the raid.
In a statement, NCB officer Sanjay Kumar Singh said all the defendants except Aryan and Mohak had narcotics in their possession. He said the agency didn’t find enough evidence to charge Aryan Khan and five others, including Evin Shahu, Gopal Ji Anando, Sameer Saighan, Bhaskar Arora, and Manav Singhli.
In a drug case breaking news headlines and making social media rounds, Aryan Khan spent more than three weeks in jail. Aryan Khan was initially reported as a regular user and supplier of drugs by the Narcotic Control Bureau.
He had no drugs in his possession at the time of the raid, stating that no evidence of this was found. On the matter, a special court hearing questioned the NCB’s submissions, saying it cannot rely on WhatsApp messages to make such serious claims.
Officer Sameer Wankhede, who had been in charge of the investigation, was sacked and is facing charges that he intentionally targeted Aryan Khan and even attempted to blackmail him. After irregularities and lapses in the investigation, the case was transferred from NCB’s Mumbai team to its Delhi team.
