The NCB has been working on this busy since two weeks. Acting on a tip off, NCB sleuths booked tickets for the cruise party as ordinary passengers and soon found some of their co-passengers consuming drugs. The ship was ordered to return to bay and eight passengers were detained and offloaded along with their baggage. The detainees spent the night in NCB custody. During their investigation, NCB officials recovered drugs like cocaine, charas, Mephedrone and Ecstasy from the cruise party.
Speaking about the case, NCB chief SN Pradhan has told ANI, “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. We have to keep on working in Mumbai. If you look at the data, there must have been more than 300 raids in the last one year. This will continue whether foreign nationals are involved, film industry or rich people are involved.”
Soon after Aryan Khan was detained, a report suggested that Shah Rukh Khan has decided to postpone the shoot of his next action entertainer ‘Pathan’. He was to head to Spain for a special song shoot with Deepika Padukone but now all plans are reportedly on hold.
