According to a report on News18, Aryan’s phone and WhatsApp chats revealed that he was regularly ordering and consuming drugs. The report also stated that the case against SRK’s son is ‘strong’ and that he is likely to be arrested soon.The raid was conducted after the NCB team got a tip-off about the rave party to be held on a cruise ship. The ship was bound on the Mumbai-Goa voyage, starting from International Cruise Terminal, Mumbai. The guests for the party were invited through social media handles which had a ticket of Rs 75,000 per person.
The NCB team disguised as undercover agents and behaved like normal passengers on the ship. As soon as the team noticed the guests started coming in they started to notice their body language. As the VIP guests made their way through mandatory security checks, Aryan Khan was nervous. The NCB team noticed it and started checking him; it was Arbaaz Merchant who had hidden drugs in his shoes.
The Ship was asked to sail back to ICT at Ballard Pier where the detained passengers were offloaded and their belongings were checked.
