In the drugs-on-cruise case, Aryan Khan Son of Shahrukh Khan was given a clean chit by the anti-drugs agency’s special team. The news arrives on the 9th birthday of his younger brother, Abram. A press note by NCB said, “Based on an input NCB Mumbai on 02.10.2021, intercepted Vikrant, Ishmeet, Arbaaz, Aryan and Gomit at International Port Terminal, MbPT and Nupur, Mohak and Munmun at the Cordelia Cruise. All the accused persons were found in possession of Narcotics except Aryan and Mohak.”
He, along with Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, was arrested last year as part of a Narcotics Control Bureau investigation. He was released from prison four weeks later, on October 30.
The NCB’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) announced in March that no evidence was uncovered against Shah Rukh Khan’s son in the case, according to HT. As per the people acquainted with the situation, no evidence was found that he was “part of a larger drugs conspiracy or an international drugs trafficking syndicate”.
As a political storm emerged over the matter following claims from Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik, the NCB probe, which was first directed by Sameer Wankhede, was relocated from Mumbai to Delhi.
