It was on the night of October 2, 2021, when the Narcotics Control Bureau had raided a party on a Goa-bound cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai and had arrested ten people and six organisers. One amongst the arrested was superstar, Shah Rukh Khan's son, Aryan Khan.
On October 20, 2021, a special court was summoned for Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan’s drug case bail application. However, his bail was rejected along with the application of his two friends, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. Currently, Aryan is lodged in Arthur Road prison in Mumbai, after the NCB arrested him.
Now, the NCB is conducting a raid at Shah Rukh Khan's house, Mannat as the officials were spotted outside the residence. The NCB is also carrying out a raid at Bollywood actress, Ananya Panday's house. It is reported that Aryan was discussing drugs with a Bollywood actress during the Mumbai cruise party.
The officials have not yet confirmed whether the raids are being carried out in connection with Aryan's case or is a separate one. Meanwhile Aryan's WhatsApp chat with drug peddlers are also submitted to the special court.
It’s been 20 days since Aryan is in the custody of NCB, and for the first time his father, Shah Rukh Khan has come to visit him. A few moments back, Shah Rukh Khan was spotted visiting his son, Aryan in the jail for the first time. There were reports that Shah Rukh was connecting with his son through video calls for the longest time. However, now the actor stepped out to visit his son at the Arthur Road jail during these testing times.
According to a journalist, Faye D’souza, the reason for the delay in Aryan Khan’s bail is because of his WhatsApp chats. The journalist had quoted her source as “Khan was not found with any drugs in his possession but the NCB argued that they have access to WhatsApp chats that suggest he was regular user, overseas. Including a chat that said “Let’s have a blast” which the NCB interprets as an intention to consume drugs.”
Aryan Khan’s next bail hearing is scheduled for October 26, 2021.
