Not a long while ago the Aryan Khan case was at the centre of the mainstream media’s multiverse. The 24-year-old, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in October after a raid on a cruise ship outside Mumbai.
He was kept in custody for almost a month as investigations continued.
The political drama was intense in the state due to the whole case.
Eventually, he was granted bail and just last month, even got a clean chit in the case after the NCB charge sheet did not mention him as one of the accused.
But throughout the whole ordeal, one side’s story was not heard of- that is of Aryan Khan the main accused in the case.
While Aryan has maintained silence in the episode, a senior NCB official recently revealed what he had said to the agency while he was in custody.
What Did Aryan Khan Say
NCB deputy director (operations) Sanjay Singh headed the Special Investigations Team (SIT) formed to investigate this case.
He was thus regularly interacting with Aryan Khan.
In a recent interview with India Today, Sanjay Singh said that Aryan told him that the agency was treating him like an ‘international drug trafficker.’
He felt betrayed and cheated by the NCB.
Sanjay even revealed Aryan saying “Sir, you have painted me as an international drug trafficker, that I finance drug trafficking–aren’t these charges absurd? They did not find any drugs on my person that day and yet they arrested me.”
All the above lines show how Aryan Khan felt and the illegitimacy of the whole case that was built on him.
Sanjay said that Aryan even asked if he deserved being in prison for so long when no evidence was found on him.
According Sanjay Aryan said “Sir, you have done me great wrong and ruined my reputation. Why did I have to spend so many weeks in jail–did I deserve it?”
Did Aryan Khan deserve all that he went through?
Did Aryan deserve to be in a Damp cell in Auther Road Central prison?
These are questions the readers need to ask and Gove answers to.
