Aryan Khan's and two others WhatsApp conversation revealed worldwide drug trafficking
Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, and two other suspects arrested for alleged drug misuse onboard a cruise ship have been placed in the custody of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) till Thursday. The NCB custody of the three was extended by Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate RM Nerlikar due to the fact that the agency seized an intermediate quantity of drugs from one of them, and Aryan Khan was accompanying them. Nerlikar also took into account the fact that the probe was still in its early stages.
Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha were arrested by the NCB on Sunday and brought before a special holiday court later that day. They were remanded in NCB detention until Monday by that court. The NCB requested that Aryan Khan, Merchant, and Dhamecha be held in jail until October 11 in order to investigate the link between drug customers and suppliers, confront all of the apprehended suspects, and apprehend other narcotics substance suppliers. The judge, however, only extended their custody until October 7.
The NCB said in court that "shocking and incriminating" material seized from Aryan Khan, Merchant, and Dhamecha's WhatsApp discussions revealed worldwide narcotics trafficking. Aryan Khan also discussed payment methods for drug purchase, according to the NCB, and many code names were used. Raids are currently taking place. Additional solicitor general Anil Singh, representing the NCB, said that shocking and incriminating material obtained in the accused's WhatsApp communications demonstrates international narcotics trafficking. All of the defendants must be confronted with each other. International transactions must be investigated, he says, adding that the NCB has detained a suspect.
