Mumbai, May 27: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday gave a clean chit to Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, in the October 2021 'drugs on cruise' case in which he was arrested last year.

He was arrested last year in a drug case in October amid a probe by the Narcotics Control Bureau, along with Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. Officials of the NCB, which filed its chargesheet in a Mumbai court, said Aryan Khan and five others had not been named due to "lack of sufficient evidence". The other accused were Vikrant, Ishmeet, Arbaaz, Ayan, Gomit, Nupur, Mohak and Munmun.
