Aryan Khan's WhatsApp chats hint his involvement in drugs trafficking
Mumbai : Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan is believed to be a part of drugs trafficking. The investigators have alleged that after checking his WhatsApp chats, it is known that he used to traffic drugs. The star son's defence team argued in the Mumbai Court that he was "not present" during the drugs-on-ship raid, had no cash to buy drugs and didn't have drugs on him.
His bail request will be taken up on Thursday again. He has been residing in jail since last Friday.
Aryan Khan - Accused No. 1 for the NCB - sourced drugs and was in touch with "some persons abroad who appear to be a part of an International Drug Network for illicit procurement of drugs", the anti-drugs agency said in a statement to the court this morning.
"WhatsApp chats reveal the accused was in touch with a foreign national for bulk quantity of hard drugs," it said, adding that the probe so far has revealed his role in the conspiracy.
Aryan Khan was arrested on a cruise ship near Mumbai on October 2 when NCB officials conducted raids.
Aryan Khan's lawyer Amit Desai stressed that no drugs were found on him when officers in disguise raided a rave party on the ship. In fact, he was not even on the ship when the raids started, he argued.
