The latest drug scandal involving Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan has elicited responses from politicians. Following in the footsteps of the NCP’s Nawab Malik, Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal takes a dig at the BJP Govt. In a scathing attack on the party, Bhujbal claimed that if Shah Rukh Khan joined, narcotics would become “Sugar powder.”
According to PTI, Bhujbal took a jab at Khan, stating, “Drugs would become sugar powder if Shah Rukh Khan joins the BJP.”
Bhujbal further connected the cruise narcotics bust to the Adani port seizures. He claims that the NCB is pursuing Khan’s family instead of investigating the big cargo of 3,000 kg cocaine. NCP’s Nawab Mallik had indicated that NCB’s Sameer Wankhede will be fired within a year.
“His statement against a central agency officer would have consequences,” BJP chief Chandrakant Patil said in response to Mallik’s statement. “Wankhede should take the required action to indicate what these consequences can be.”
Meanwhile, Aryan Khan remains imprisoned in the Arthur Road prison in Mumbai. The Mumbai Sessions court denied his release last week, and his judicial custody has been prolonged until October 30.
Following the rejection of his bail application last week, SRK and his family have appealed to the Bombay High Court, with a bail hearing scheduled for October 26.
