Aryan Khan, son of actor Shahrukh Khan has been remanded to one-day NCB custody.

He has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with the seizure of banned drugs on a cruise off the Mumbai coast.

Special Prosecutor for the NCB, Advocate Advait Sethna sought police custody for two days, however, Khan's lawyer conceded to one day's custody.

"Your honour may take me in custody and remand me for one day so that whatever investigation needs to be done, is done. Because I am neither found in possession nor is there an allegation of consumption. None of the sections attracts the embargo under section 37 of the NDPS", Khan's lawyer Satish Maneshinde submitted.

Maneshinde submitted that he will tender the bail application tomorrow before the regular court. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate RK Rajebhosale of Esplanade Court has remanded Khan and two others.

Khan is booked under sections 8(C) read with 20, 35 and 27 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.

The twenty-three-year-old has been arrested along with two others. The police took them for a medical check-up. Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant are the other arrested persons.

Officials of NCB Mumbai conducted a raid on the Cordelia Cruise on the way from Mumbai to Goa on October 2, 2021.

A total of 8 persons, including Khan, were detained after the raids.

The accused were arrested in connection with seizure of 13 grams of cocaine, 5gms of MD(mephedrone), 21 grams of charas, 22 pills of MDMA (ecstasy) and Rs 1,33,000 at International Cruise Terminal, Mumbai.
