Chunky Panday‘s daughter Ananya Panday is now another target for NCB. NCB is conducting a search operation on Thursday afternoon at Ananya’s house.
NCB forage at Ananya Panday’s house:
Three NCB officials and a female officer conducted a search operation at Ananya’s house. The officials investigated the property. Another team visited Shah Rukh Khan’s home Mannat. Aryan Khan and Ananya Panday are close friends. Even Chunky and Bhavana Panday are friends with SRK and Gauri.
Aryan’s case procedure updates:
A special NDPS court had rejected Aryan Khan’s bail request. Now he is in Bombay High Court. Now his bail hearing is on October 26. Aryan’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde requested a hearing on Friday or Monday but NCB does not have the copy yet. Court refused Maneshinde’s request for a hearing via video conferencing. Now Aryan’s bail plea hearing is on Tuesday.
Aryan in Arthur Road Jail:
Aryan is at the Arthur Road Jail with other accused from the drugs-on-cruise case. Zonal Director of NCB’s Mumbai unit, Sameer Wankhede had stated, ‘Satyamev Jayate’ as a reaction to Aryan’s bail application. Aryan also underwent counseling in jail and promised to work for society.
Further Investigation in Aryan’s case:
The special NDPS Act court noted something in the 21-page order about Aryan’s WhatsApp chats. The chats revealed that he was “dealing in illicit drug activities on a regular basis”. This made NDPS unsure about Aryan not committing a similar offense again if released on bail. Earlier, NCB argued that Aryan was not new to drugs. Even though no drugs were found with him. The drugs found with Aryan Khan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant were for their personal use. The defense insisted that the NCB has no strong base to continue to keep the accused in custody. Because no drugs were recovered from Aryan’s personal possession. Also, his Whatsapp chats were about football and other stuff.
