No evidence of extortion found in Aryan Khan’s drugs on cruise case: Mumbai Police – Times of India

The investigation in the extortion allegations in the drugs-on-cruise case, wherein Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan was arrested, has been halted for now. Mumbai Police has stated that no case has been registered and that no evidence has been found in the matter yet.

“Investigation of alleged extortion matter in connection with drugs on cruise case halted until next order. Mumbai Police had constituted SET (Special Enquiry Team) to investigate and had questioned around 20 people. No case registered so far as no evidence found yet,” ANI quoted the Mumbai Police. This probe began after independent witness in the drugs case, Prabhakar Sail, alleged that some NCB officials, including Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede, had demanded an extortion of Rs 25 crore for letting off accused Aryan Khan, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan. Deputy Director General of the NCB, Gyaneshwar Singh was heading the vigilance inquiry.

Aryan Khan was arrested on October 2 by the NCB after a drugs bust on a cruise party that he was attending. While granting him bail on October 28, the HC had imposed a condition on him that he should appear before the NCB’s south Mumbai office every Friday to mark his presence. Recently, the Bombay High Court exempted Aryan Khan from his weekly appearance before the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) office. A single bench of Justice N W Sambre said the condition imposed on Aryan Khan while granting him bail that he has to appear before the NCB office every Friday is modified.
