NCB’s controversial officer, Sameer Wankhede, was quoted as saying that his agency had not carried out any raids the residence of Shah Rukh Khan and officials only visited to collect a few documents.
The ‘visit’ by NCB officials to Shah Rukh Khan’s residence came moments after the Bollywood icon visited Arthur Road Jail to meet his son Aryan, who was denied bail by a special court in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Shah Rukh has approached the Bombay High Court, which listed the matter for 26 October.
According to ANI, Ananya has been summoned for questioning later today.
22-year-old Ananya made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year. Daughter of actor Chunkey Pandey, Ananya also acted opposite Kartik Aryan in Pati, Patni Aur Woh. She is also believed to be a good friend with Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan.
As for Aryan Khan, he’s been in jail since 8 October after he was taken into custody by the NCB on 3 October when the Modi government’s agency raided a Goa-bound cruise. Seven others were also arrested in connection with the case.
But, according to Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik, three people with close association with the BJP were let off after being detained from the same cruise.
