    Shatrughan Sinha on Aryan Khan case: "I can understand helplessness Shah Rukh Khan must have gone through

    Days after Aryan Khan was given a clean chit by Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB) in Mumbai’s cruise ship drugs case, several celebrities expressed their anger over the probe institution for targeting Shah Rukh Khan’s son in the case. The actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha has shared his opinion on the matter. He said that all people involved in framing the innocent boy should be taken to task with deterrent punishment.

    On Friday, NCB dropped Aryan’s name from the list of accused in the October 2021 Goa-bound Cordelia cruise ship drug raid. Previously Sinha had come in support of Aryan when he was arrested in the case, now the politician feels vindicated after the probe agency gave a clean chit. "My stand seems to have vindicated now. I did support not only Aryan, but also Shah Rukh Khan. He was paying a price for being ― Shah Rukh Khan. This action or reaction of the government is certainly highly appreciated. But then, at the same time, I would like to say that it seems to be too little and too late.” he told Bombay Times.

    He continued, “All the people involved in framing an innocent boy and sending him behind the bars for no rhyme or reason, without any evidence and without any proper investigation must be taken to task with a deterrent punishment. So that in future they might have to think one thousand times before taking such a step."

    Further, Sinha said that the NCB action seems to be politics of vendetta. "They have victimised Aryan just because he is the son of the most popular actor of India ― Shah Rukh Khan. This seems to be politics of vendetta. This is not acceptable, especially by a high profile institution like NCB. I can understand the pain, anguish and the helplessness that Shah Rukh Khan must have gone through.”

    Earlier, celebrities like filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma, actresses Pooja Bhatt, and Shruti Seth had questioned the efficiency of the probe agency and also sympathized with Aryan asking who will be responsible for scarring the young boy’s life.
