Aryan Khan accused NCB of ‘ruining reputation’ after arrest
Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s son, has been accused of everything from drug possession to ties to international drug gangs. The NCB, on the other hand, gave him a clean chit in May 2022.
According to a recent report, Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan questioned NCB officers if he deserved to be labeled an “international drug trafficker” despite the fact that no illicit substances were detected on his person. Aryan was accused of illicit narcotics possession to be tied to international criminal groups. The NCB, however, gave him clean chit health in May 2022, citing a “lack of adequate evidence.”
According to India Today, NCB deputy director-general (operations) Sanjay Singh, who led the SIT investigating the case, recalled his interactions with Aryan. He’d promised Aryan that he’d talk to him ‘with an open mind.’ Aryan, he claims, asked him a few “soul-searching questions.” He said “Sir, you have painted me as an international drug trafficker, that I finance drug trafficking — aren’t these charges absurd? They did not find any drugs on my person that day and yet they arrested me. Sir, you have done me great wrong and ruined my reputation. Why did I have to spend so many weeks in jail — did I really deserve it?”
In October of last year, Aryan was detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with an alleged narcotics raid on board a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. He was held in jail for many weeks before being released on bail.
