The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday arrested Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, and seven others in connection with the seizure of banned drugs onboard a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. As per the arrest memo of the NCB, 13 grams of cocaine, five gram of MD, 21 grams of charas and 22 pills of Ecstasy and Rs 1.33 lakh was seized after the raid.
Reports further stated that an NCB team, led by its zonal director Sameer Wankhede, raided the Goa-bound ship based on a tip-off that a party was scheduled.
Merchant was subjected to a thorough check and drugs were reportedly found in his shoes. Arbaaz and Aryan were then detained for questioning.
The NCB sources further said that even when Aryan Khan was in the UK, Dubai and other countries, he used to consume drugs.
The star kid’s bail hearing will be held today afternoon. Reports state that while Aryan was taken into custody, nothing was found on him and hence, he was booked only on consumption charges.
