Multiple teams of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) have reached Shah Rukh Khan’s Bandra residence ‘Mannat’ and also the residence of actor Ananya Panday.
NCB teams on Thursday carried out raids in the Andheri area of Mumbai, acting on a lead from one of the accused in the Mumbai cruise drugs bust case.
An NCB team reached Ananya Panday and Chunky Panday’s residence at Khar West, Mumbai. Ananya Panday has been summoned by the NCB at 2 pm today.
An NCB team reached Shah Rukh Khan’s residence ‘Mannat’ hours after he visited his son Aryan Khan at the Arthur Road jail on Thursday. Aryan Khan is among those who have been arrested in the Mumbai cruise drugs bust case.
Update: An NCB official who was part of the team that went to SRK’s residence said the visit was to give a formal notice saying if Aryan Khan has any other electronic devices, they must be handed over to the NCB for investigation.
On Wednesday, a Mumbai special court had rejected his bail application. Aryan Khan and 8 others were detained on October 3 and later arrested after NCB raided the Cordelia cruise ship off the Mumbai coast.
Later, Aryan Khan moved the Bombay High Court to seek bail. The high court has said it would hear the bail plea on October 26. Aryan Khan’s advocate Satish Maneshinde mentioned the plea before a single bench of Justice N W Sambre, seeking an urgent hearing on Friday.
Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, appearing for the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), however, sought time till next week. Justice Sambre then posted the plea for hearing on October 26.
On that day, the HC will also hear the bail plea filed by co-accused Munmun Dhamecha.
