No evidence found against Aryan Khan in drug on Cruise case: NCB

There was no evidence of Aryan Khan, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan, being involved in a larger drugs conspiracy or an international drugs trafficking syndicate, and there were several irregularities in the raid on the yacht Cordelia during which he was arrested, reports a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

The news: The raid was not video-recorded as required by the NCB manual, and the drugs recovered from multiple accused arrested in the case were shown as a single recovery.  

  • Aryan Khan was never in possession of drugs, so there was no need to take his phone and check his chats; the chats do not suggest Khan was part of any international syndicate; the raid was not video-recorded as required by the NCB manual; and the drugs recovered from multiple accused arrested in the case were shown as a single recovery.
  • As per sources, the SIT investigation isn’t over, and the final report to NCB Director General, S N Pradhan could take several months. Before a final decision is made, a legal opinion will be sought, notably on the question of whether Khan may be charged with consumption despite the fact that he was not in possession of any drugs, according to one of the officers.
  • The SIT probe seems to raise more questions over the raid itself, and the conduct of the agency’s former Mumbai Zonal Unit director, Sameer Wankhede.

What happened: The high-profile case got shrouded in controversy when a key NCB witness alleged that the agency’s Mumbai zonal chief, Sameer Wankhede was part of a ₹25 crore extortion racket targeting Khan .

  • The witness, Prabhakar Sail, also alleged that he was forced to sign sheets of blank paper, prompting the anti-drug agency to set up an inquiry into Wankhede.
