Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday arrested three persons, including Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, after raids on an alleged rave party on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast last night.
According to Times Now, Aryan has been arrested under Section 27 of the NDPS (Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act). Soon after his arrest, he along with Arbaz Seth Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, was taken to JJ Hospital for a medical examination.
Multiple people were detained for questioning after illegal drugs were recovered at a party.
NCB’s Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede had earlier confirmed that the agency was questioning Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker and Gomit Chopra in connection with the rave party.
“We are acting in an impartial manner. In the process, if some connections to Bollywood or rich people emerge, so be it. We have to act within the purview of the law,” NCB Chief S N Pradhan had told the ANI.
The officials of the anti-drug agency had boarded the ship disguised as passengers following a tip-off about the rave party being organised in the cruise ship which was to leave for Goa on Saturday evening.
Meanwhile, Cordelia Cruises has released a statement saying that it had chartered its ship for a private event to a Delhi-based event management company. “We are extending our full support and cooperating with the authorities,” it added.
