Son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Aryan Khan, is among the eight individuals who are at present being questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after it raided a cruise ship and busted a drugs party.

In a late evening operation on Saturday, an NCB team busted an alleged drugs party on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa at mid-sea. A party was organised by a private lifestyle and fashion channel on the cruise to which many VIPs were invited. A total of 1,800 guests were on board the cruise out of which eight were detained for questioning.

Among those who are being questioned apart from Aryan Khan are Munmum Dhamecha, Arbaaz Merchant, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker and Gomit Chopra. No charges have been fixed, at the timing of writing the report. The questioning may continue for next few hours. The officials will also be calling the organiser of the party.

According to NCB sources in Mumbai, 22 officials had entered the ship as guests with VIP passes as they had a tip-off about a possible drugs party at the cruise around 15 days ago.
