Mumbai/Bhubaneswar: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan has been shifted to the common cell from the quarantine barrack of the Arthur Road jail after his Covid-19 test report turned out negative.
Besides Aryan, five others arrested in connection with the case were shifted to the common cell, said Nitin Waychal, the superintendent of Arthur Road Jail.
In a sensational claim, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday alleged that Aryan along with others, was prima facie involved in “illicit drug trafficking, procuring and distribution of contraband” banned under the NDPS Act.
The agency also accused Aryan of being in touch with some persons abroad who could be part of an international illegal drug syndicate and it is continuing further investigations to unearth his links to contact the foreign agency through proper channels.
The NCB’s statement came during a hearing of the bail applications of Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant, Munmun Dhamecha, Mohak Jaswal, Nupur Satija, Aachit Kumar, Shreyas Nair and Avin Sahu before Special NDPS Judge V.V. Patil.
Since the arguments remained incomplete, the matter will continue on Thursday afternoon, and Aryan Khan and the 7 others arrested remain in custody since October 2.
