Mumbai cruise drug case: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has opposed the bail plea filed by actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan, who was arrested in the case earlier this month.

The NCB alleged that Aryan Khan not only consumed drugs, but was also involved in illicit drug trafficking.

The NCB accused Aryan Khan and one Pooja Dadlani, who is Shah Rukh Khan's manager, of tampering with the evidence and witnesses in the case in a bid to derail the probe into the Mumbai cruise drug case.

On the other side, the advocates of Aryan Khan informed the High Court that he (Aryan Khan) had nothing to do with the allegations and counter allegations being circulated between NCB's zonal director Sameer Wankhede and certain political personalities.
