Apart from Aryan, seven other people were involved, namely Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker, Gomit Chopra and Arbaaz Merchant. Reported from India Today, The Bollywood superstar’s son is said to be carrying narcotics in his lens case. Due to this incident, 8 people who were included in the party on the cruise ship were interrogated until October 4, 2021.
The chronology begins when the officer gets a report and disguises himself as a passenger. Some evidence of narcotics and psychotropic substances was secured from there
Starting from the raid, Aryan Khan and his friends were known to be partying on a cruise ship. Based on information from the public, there will be a big party when they want to sail to Goa on Saturday, October 2, 2021 night. The NCB team went undercover on Saturday morning. The party started after the ship left Mumbai, in the middle of the sea.
After coordinating, the NCB team launched its action from 10 am to 2 pm. Based on reports NDTV, During the operation, officers found evidence including 13 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of charas, 22 pills of MDMA (ecstasy) and 5 grams of MD (Mephedrone). They are known to hide in clothes, underwear and purses.
The charges leveled against Aryan Khan include the purchase, possession and use of illegal drugs. This is in line with WhatsApp chats which revealed that Aryan and his friends had discussed illegal drugs more than once.
It was informed that Shahrukh Khan panicked after his son was arrested by the police. He immediately went to the lawyer’s office after learning that Aryan Khan was detained. Lawyer Satish Maneshinde was chosen to be the attorney for the case.
The cruise ship condemned the incident. Cordelia Cruises stands ready to support and cooperate with the authorities
The incident that made headlines in India brought shipping companies into the spotlight. According to the news, the company does not want to be involved in this incident. They claim to be only a provider of cruise ship rental services. However, this unexpected incident can be used as a lesson for them to be more careful in renting out this luxury property.
“Cordelia Cruises is completely unrelated, either directly or indirectly. We condemn all acts of this nature and firmly refrain from letting our ship out for a similar event in the future. However, we fully support and work closely with the authorities,” said Jurgen Bailom, Chief Executive Officer and President, Waterways Leisure Tourism Pvt. NDTV.
Meanwhile, according to lawyer Aryan Khan said that the 23-year-old man was only an invited guest at the cruise ship event. The client side is only captured based on chat messages.
“Aryan has no tickets, no cabins or seats on the cruise ship. He was there by invitation. He doesn’t even have boarding passes. Nothing was found on him. He was arrested just based on chatter,” argued Satish Maneshinde, the lawyer.
Until now, Shahrukh Khan has not publicly responded to the case that happened to his son. We hope that the incident that occurred can be revealed as soon as possible and can be used as a lesson for anyone.
