Bollywood Actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan has been sent to Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) custody till October 7 in connection with drugs seizure case on board a cruise ship. Remand of two other accused in the case Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha was also extended by a metropolitan magistrate court.
Additional chief metropolitan magistrate RM Nerlikar extended the NCB custody of the three primarily in view of the fact that the agency has recovered intermediate quantity of drugs from one of them, and Aryan Khan was accompanying them.
Besides, the court also took into consideration that the investigation was at a preliminary and crucial stage.
Acting on a specific tip-off, NCB on Saturday night raided a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast and busted a party where drugs were allegedly being used. The agency on Sunday afternoon arrested Aryan, the eldest son of Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, for alleged possession and consumption of illegal drugs.
The two others arrested with him are Arbaaz Merchant, a resident of Bandra and a friend of Aryan, and Munmun Dhamecha, a fashion designer from Madhya Pradesh.
