Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan gets clean chit in drugs case

Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday exonerated Aryan Khan, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan, and five others as it charged 14 people in the drugs case related to the raid on the yacht Cordelia in Mumbai on October 2.

The SIT, headed by Sanjay Kumar Singh, re-looked at the case and has concluded there is not enough evidence to pursue it. It was constituted after allegations surfaced that Aryan Khan may have been implicated and attempts to extort money were made.

“SIT carried out its investigation in an objective manner. The touchstone of the principle of proof beyond reasonable doubt has been applied. Based on the investigation carried out by SIT, a complaint [charge sheet] has been filed against 14 persons under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Complaint against the rest six persons is not being filed due to lack of sufficient evidence,” NCB said in a statement.

The agency said when the raid happened except for Aryan Khan and another person, the rest of the accused were found in possession of drugs.
