Mumbai cruise drugs case: Aryan Khan regular consumer of drugs, says NCB
New Delhi, Oct 14: The special court is hearing the bail plea of Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, arrested in connection with the seizure of banned drugs on board a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast.
The Narcotics Control Bureau says Aryan Khan is not a consumer for the first time, but the record and evidence placed before the court shows that he has been a regular consumer of contraband for a few years.
For proof, NBC provided Panchnama and WhatsApp chats to the court. Anil C Singh added, that Aryan Khan did not take drugs only once. He told the court that drugs have been found on Arbaaz Merchant and Aryan was with him.
The NCB in its affidavit also said that Aryan Khan was in touch with some persons, who appear to be a part of an international drug network for procurement of drugs.
"During initial investigation, some international linkages pertinent to this applicant (Aryan Khan) have been unearthed which prima facie indicate towards illicit drug procurement. The investigation requires sufficient time so as to approach the foreign agency concerned," the affidavit said.
