Aryan Khan, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan, has been sent to judicial custody by the Magistrate’s court in the Mumbai drugs-on-cruise case. Aryan was supplied drugs by one of the other men arrested in the cruise ship drug bust, the anti-drugs agency said in court today as it argued against the 23-year-old being given bail. On Monday, he was denied bail after his sensational arrest and was sent to the custody of anti-drugs agency Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) till today by a Mumbai court.
“Investigation is of prime importance and it needs to be carried out. It benefits both accused and investigator,” a judge said while extending the custody of Aryan Khan and seven others.
All eight were arrested on Sunday after the anti-drugs agency went undercover and raided a rave party on Saturday evening on the “Cordelia” cruise sailing from Mumbai to Goa.
The raids produced a haul of 13 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of charas, 22 pills of MDMA and 5 grams of MD, the anti-drugs bureau said. The drugs were found hidden in clothes, underwear and purses, reported news agency Press Trust of India, quoting an unnamed official of the anti-drugs bureau.
