Aryan Khan drug case: NCB likely to seek extended custody of Shah Rukh Khan’s son after arrest of foreign national drug supplier – Times of India

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is likely to seek an extension in the custody of Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan today.

According to a report on Times Now, this comes after the NCB arrested a foreign national from Bandra late Wednesday night. It was reported that a commercial quantity of mephedrone (MD) was recovered from him.

The man in question was reportedly found in an area that was in close proximity to both Aryan and his friend, Arbaaz Merchant. The star-kid was expected to walk free as the NCB’s custody ends today. However, in the light of these new findings, it has been reported that the central agency may just ask for further custody of Aryan and the others arrested.

Aryan, 23, was first sent into NCB’s custody for one day and then, on Monday, October 4, his custody was extended to October 7. The period ends today.

Senior counsel Satish Maneshinde, who represents Aryan (23) in the matter, is expected to make another application for bail.

Meanwhile, Sameer Wankhede, the Zonal Director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been fending off reports about the ‘credibility’ of the central agency amidst the ongoing drug case.

Reacting to allegations of the entire cruise drug bust being “fake” and reports that ‘no drugs’ were found on the star kid, he said, “We are a highly competent and professional agency. For us, the prime importance is the NDPS act irrespective of the person or his standing.”
