Mumbai Drug Bust Case LIVE Updates
Ananya Pandey, the daughter of actor Chunky Pandey, is reportedly under surveillance by the Narcotics Control Bureau. NCB officials have not confirmed whether the case is related to Aryan Khan’s drug case or that it is separate.
Shah Rukh Khan’s residence Mannat was also visited by agency officials. An upcoming Bollywood actress was reportedly discussing drugs with Aryan during a cruise party in Mumbai. A WhatsApp chat from the NCB was submitted to the special court on Wednesday. The court also heard his conversations with drug dealers.
Aryan Khan‘s bail application will be heard at the Bombay high court on October 26; reports ANI. It was previously stated that his case would likely be presented to Justice NW Sambre today; requesting an urgent hearing. The move came after the Narcotics Control Bureau filed a drugs case against Shah Rukh Khan’s son that was denied bail by a Mumbai special court.
After prison officials allowed in-person meetings, Bollywood superstar SRK arrived at Arthur Road jail today to meet son Aryan. After being banned by the Covid protocol for days; physical meetings will now be allowed. Aryan is in jail for the 18th day since his arrest.
It cannot be said that Aryan Khan would not commit a similar offense if released on bail; as the special NDPS Act court noted in its 21-page order that Aryan Khan’s WhatsApp messages appeared to indicate that he usually dealt in illicit substances.
Despite the fact that he was found to be free of drugs; the NCB argued in court that Aryan was not new to drugs. The investigation found drugs on Aryan Khan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant for Aryan and Arbaaz’s personal consumption, they claimed. Nevertheless; the defense maintained that there is no reason for the NCB to continue keeping the accused in custody since no drugs were found in Aryan’s possession, and he only talked about football in his WhatsApp chats.
Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials visited Shah Rukh Khan’s Mumbai residence today. In addition to collecting certain documents, officials visited SRK’s Mannat.
