Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan and actor Arbaaz Seth Merchantt have been detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau after the investigating agency raided a luxury cruise liner and seized drugs. The duo are reportedly close friends and a video capturing their friendship has surfaced online.
According to IANS, the NCB has detained eight people in this drugs bust and is likely to arrest Aryan Khan. Gauri Khan was snapped heading to court on Sunday afternoon, where her son will be presented before the holiday court. Sources close to the NCB have told ETimes that some drugs may have been found in Arbaaz’s possession. It was also revealed by sources close to the NCB that the officials will scan Aryan Khan’s mobile phone to check for traces of his direct involvement in the possession or consumption of drugs.
Acting on a tip off, the NCB sleuths booked tickets for the cruise party as ordinary passengers and soon found some of their co-passengers consuming drugs. The ship was ordered to return to bay and eight passengers were detained and offloaded along with their baggage. The detainees were sent for a medical examination and they reportedly spent the night in NCB custody. The investigating agency has recovered drugs like cocaine, charas, Mephedrone and Ecstasy from the cruise party.
