Shocking material recovered from Aryan Khan's WhatsApp chats: NCB reveals in court

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 • Tamil Comments

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) reportedly claimed before a city court on Monday that "shocking and incriminating" material recovered in WhatsApp chats of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan, and two others accused in the cruise ship drugs case, showed international drug trafficking.

As per a report by a news agency, the NCB apparently claimed that Aryan Khan had used code words and also discussed the modes of payment for the procurement of drugs. However, Aryan Khan's lawyer Satish Maneshinde has specified that no drugs were recovered from his client's possession and that he had no criminal antecedents. The NCB counsel was quoted as saying by a news agency, "Raids are going on now. Shocking and incriminating material recovered in WhatsApp chats of the accused shows international drug trafficking. Accused Aryan Khan, in the WhatsApp chats, is discussing modes of payment to be done for procurement (of drugs). Several code names are being used. All the accused persons have to be confronted with each other. The international transactions need to be investigated."

Aryan Khan was earlier booked under Sections 27 (punishment for consumption of any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance), 8C (produce, manufacture, possess, sell or purchase of drugs) and other relevant provisions of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS). Refuting NCB's claims, Aryan's lawyer reportedly said, "Nothing incriminating was recovered from Aryan Khan except his mobile phone. His friend (Merchant) was arrested because he had six grams of charas, but that has nothing to do with my client. During the entire period of his (Aryan) stay abroad, he has not been involved in any trafficking, supply or distribution of drugs."
