Aryan Khan vows to 'work for poor' during counselling session with NCB

Aryan Khan vows to work for poor during counselling session with NCB

Mumbai: Aryan Khan, during his counselling at the office of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) told officers that from now on, he would work for the society and devote himself to the country and the poor.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan's 23-year-old son has been held in a Mumbai jail over allegations in the drugs-on-cruise case since October 8 and was briefly in the custody of the NCB before that.

"During counselling, he [Khan] said that he will work for the society now and devote himself to the service of the country and the underprivileged," said the agency's high-profile Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede, who has been leading the investigation.

After the arrest, Aryan along with seven other accused including two women arrested by the NCB underwent a counselling session.

"We counsel every arrested accused and it is done for two to three hours daily during custody," Mr Wankhede told reporters when asked about Aryan Khan.

Wankhede said the sessions involve priests from across religions and social workers in the field of fighting drugs.

"The accused are given the Gita, Kuran or Bible based on their faith," said the officer.

A special court for Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act cases would pass the order on Aryan's bail plea on October 20.

So far, a total of 20 people, including two Nigerian nationals, have been arrested so far in case.

Aryan Khan's lawyers have argued in court that no drugs were found on him and he was not present when drugs were seized during the raid. The NCB, however, says the star son's WhatsApp chats reveal his links to an international cartel and the fact that he regularly sourced drugs.
