Drugs case: NCB SIT to probe Aryan Khan, Armaan Kohli and Sameer Khan cases; To drop 3 cases
The high profile drugs case involving Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan continues to create ripples in the industry. While the star kid has been out on bail at present, the case continues to be investigated by the Narcotics Control Bureau. In fact, an SIT was formed post an uproar over allegations of a payoff to an NCB official and it was reported that the team will be investigating six cases including Aryan Khan’s drugs case. However, as per a recent update, the SIT will now focus on just three cases at the moment.
The three cases which will be on the SIT’s priority list at the moment include Aryan Khan’s Mumbai cruise drugs bust case, Armaan Kohli’s case and NCP minister Nawab Malik’s son in law Sameer Khan’s case. To note, this decision was taken given the shortage of manpower. Talking about it NCB debut director Sanjay Singh told the Times of India, “Due to shortage of manpower we have now taken up only three cases to relook at investigations carried out and later, we will take up the other three”.
It is reported that the three cases dropped at the moment were about small drug seizures in Mumbra, Jogeshwari and Nagpada. Meanwhile talking about Aryan Khan’s case, he has been asked to mark his attendance at the NCB office every week and it was reported that he was grilled till midnight by the NCB’s SIT during his recent visit. Reportedly, he was asked about the circumstances under which he boarded the Cordelia Cruise ship, his friends' group and their drug related preferences as well as his alleged links to drug suppliers.
