Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan arrested on drug charges after raid on Mumbai cruise ship

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was taken into custody by India’s Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday for alleged possession of banned drugs and substance abuse on board a cruise ship.

According to the Hindustan Times, Aryan and two others were taken into custody on Sunday after drug enforcers raided a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast and busted a party where drugs were being used. “Aryan and others were on the cruise ship where the agency busted a rave party,” NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede said. Officers seized cocaine, hashish and MDMA (ecstasy) amongst other drugs at a cruise terminal in Mumbai.

A Delhi-based event company is believed to have organised the party and a series of others on cruise ships. The cruise ship was scheduled to go to Goa on Saturday night and return to Mumbai by Monday.

The 23-year-old and others were taken for a medical examination at a hospital in Mumbai after which Aryan was brought back to the NCB’s office for an interrogation. Officials said they were tipped off about the rave party and boarded the ship as passengers.The court had remanded Aryan to the custody of NCB till Monday. He is to be produced before court again on Monday after his medical examination.

The chief of NCB has stated that they will be looking at a larger “Bollywood connection” in relation to the case. “There is a Bollywood connection and we are investigating all angles of the case. We are looking at the main supplier and the entire cartel behind this drugs case,” he said to Indian news agency PTI.
