SRK’s son sent to three-day NCB custody with 2 others
Spelling a setback, a Mumbai Magistrate Court on Monday extended the NCB custody of Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, till October 7, though no drugs were found from him during a bust aboard a luxury cruise ship.
The Additional Chief Metropolitan Court RM Nerlikar also sent the two co-accused Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant to the custody of NCB till October 7.
In the order, ACMM Nerlikar noted that the accused (Aryan Khan) had accompanied the co-accused (Merchant) from whom the contraband drugs were recovered.
Seeking extended custody for the accused trio till October 11, the Additional Solicitor-General Anil Singh argued that links found on Aryan Khan’s WhatsApp chats point to an international racket.
Besides the 8 nabbed from the swoop on the cruiser, Singh said that one more person has been arrested by the NCB from Juhu and recovered ‘commercial quantity’ of drugs from him, and the custody of the accused trio was necessary to unearth their nexus.
