    Aryan Khan gets a clean chit from the NCB, lawyer says 'Shah Rukh Khan is relieved'

    Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan has gotten a clean chit from the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the alleged drug case for which he was arrested in October last year. The agency gave the clean chit to the star kid due to the lack of evidence against him. Aryan’s lawyer Mukul Rohatgi has now stated that he is happy that the NCB has accepted their mistake.

    Talking to NDTV about the same, Aryan Khan’s lawyer Mukul Rohatgi said, “I'm relieved, and so must my clients be, including Shah Rukh Khan. The truth has prevailed. Ultimately, there was no material to charge this young man (Aryan Khan) or arrest him. He was not found with any drugs and I had clearly indicated to the court that the arrest was completely meaningless."

    The lawyer furthermore said that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has acted professionally in this case. He said, “I'm happy that the NCB has acted professionally. At least at the time of filing the charge sheet, admitting and realizing that there was no reason to proceed against this young man. They have admitted their mistake."

    Mukul Rohatgi further added that the ‘dark chapter’ and the anxiety that it had caused Aryan Khan and his family must be forgotten now and that people should look forward to a bright future. The lawyer added that it was a harrowing experience for the star kid and his family. Rohatgi also said that Aryan’s father and megastar Shah Rukh Khan is also relieved like him after the development.

    Reportedly, Aryan Khan and the other co-accused in the case were given a clean shit today (May 27). The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) was given a two-month extension from the court in March this year after they had failed to file a charge sheet on the case. The agency had filed a 6000-paged charge sheet and had named 14 people as the accused on the case and Aryan was not a part of the list.
