Mumbai News Highlights: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) said Sunday that the eight persons it had detained for questioning in the wake of Saturday night’s raid on a cruise ship mid-sea included actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan. During the raid, the NCB busted an alleged rave party that was underway and seized several drugs including cocaine, mephedrone and ecstasy.
An officer said the statements of those detained are being recorded under section 67 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, following which the future course of action will be decided. An NCB official confirmed that Aryan Khan is being questioned, but he has not been charged.
The NCB officials claimed that a few days ago they had received information about the rave party being organised in the passenger cruise ship which was to leave for Goa on Saturday evening. The officials accordingly booked tickets and boarded the cruise ship disguised as passengers.
