The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Thursday visited ‘Mannat,’ house of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, to collect certain material related to the investigation of the case of his son Aryan Khan who is in judicial custody over his alleged drug chats on WhatsApp.

The agency on Thursday also summoned Bollywood actor Ananya Pandey to record her statement after her name appeared in the WhatsApp chats. She visited the NCB office in the afternoon along with her father and actor Chunky Pandey.

Earlier in the day, Mr. Khan visited his son at the Arthur Road jail. The Bombay High Court will hear the bail petition of Mr. Aryan Khan on October 26.

NCB zonal head Sameer Wankhede in a press release said, “Today on 21 October, a team of NCB Mumbai Zonal Unit officials visited Mannat, the residence of Shri Aryan Khan in connection with Cr 94/21 for seeking certain material related to the investigation of the case from Mr. Sharukh Khan, F/o Aryan Khan by following due procedure of notice etc. It wasn’t a raid as erroneously reported in certain sections/channels of media.”

Continuing his series of allegations against Mr. Wankhede, Nationalist Congress Party leader and Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik said the extortion money collected by the NCB from Bollywood was collected in the Maldives when the officer’s relatives including his sister Jasmeen Wankhede, known as Lady Don, were there when many Bollywood stars too were there. “Was he also there?” he asked, demanding an answer. Mr. Malik also released photographs of Ms. Wankhede when she was in the Maldives.
