A team of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) paid visit to Shah Rukh Khan’s residence to collect some documents regarding his son Aryan Khan’s drugs-related case. NCB’s zonal director Sameer Wankhede revealed that no raids were conducted during the visit.
NCB team’s visit led by senior officials, to the superstar’s residence, Mannat, came hours after Khan visited his son at Arthur Road Jail in Central Mumbai for the first time since his arrest. “NCB team visited Shah Rukh Khan’s residence to collect some documents related to Aryan Khan. No raids were conducted at ‘Mannat’,” Wankhede was quoted saying.
Issuing a statement on the visit Wankhede revealed the officials visited the superstar’s residence “for seeking certain material related to the investigation of the case” from Khan by “following due procedure of notice”. “It wasn’t a raid as erroneously reported in certain sections/channels of media,” it further read. NCB deputy director general Ashok Mutha Jain also said “We had gone there as part of procedural requirement.”
Another team of the NCB went to actor Ananya Pandey’s house in Bandra and asked her to appear before agency officers to record her statement. Earlier a special court denied bail to Aryan, stating that ‘on the face of it’, he was indulging in “illicit drug activities on a regular basis”. Aryan Khan then moved the Bombay High Court to challenge the lower court’s order. The high court said it would hear his bail plea on October 26.
