Bollywood’s megastar Shahrukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was detained regarding the drug bust on Saturday. Today Narcotics Control Bureau took Aryan and eight others in custody for questioning. In the light of the matter actor Suniel Shetty has spoken up on the subject and requested fans and media to ‘let the boy breathe’.
As per the reports by ANI, Sunil said, “The fact is, whenever there’s a raid, many people are taken. We assume that this child has consumed something, or this child has done that. The investigation is underway. Let’s give that child a breather. Whenever something like this from our industry happens, the media cracks down on it and we make assumptions, give the child an opportunity, let the real reports come out, till then, he’s a child, taking care of him is our responsibility.”
An officer informed the media that the statements of those detained are being recorded under section 67 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. The future course of action will be decided following the act. An NCB official reported that Aryan Khan is being questioned, but not been charged.
The officials alleged that they got a tip-off about the rave party a few days ago. The event organised in the passenger cruise ship was to leave for Goa on Saturday evening. Therefore, the officials accordingly boarded the cruise ship disguised as passengers.
An NCB official also mentioned that as soon as the cruise left Mumbai, the onboard passengers started consuming drugs, that is when the NCB officials caught hold of them.
