In the recent development in Aryan Khan’s case, Narcotics Control Bureau has handed over the Mumbai cruise drug bust case to their SIT. The Mumbai Police SIT has summoned Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani to record her statement in the extortion investigation in regard to the ongoing drugs raid case. Not just Pooja, Chunky Panday's brother Chikki Panday was also asked to appear before the Mumbai Police for questioning. However, both Pooja Dadlani and Chikki Panday, reportedly, did not turn up.
As per a report in Pinkvilla, Pooja Dadlani failed to turn up citing health issues. SRK’s manager Dadlani was asked to appear before the SIT team in the DCP Zone 1 office to record her statement on Saturday. However, Pooja sought more time from the police citing poor health.
On the other hand, Chunky Panday’s brother Chikki too did not appear before the SIT as he has tested positive for Covid-19. He contacted the Mumbai Police and informed them that he won't be able to join the probe as he has tested positive for the novel virus.
Pooja Dadlani’s name cropped up in the probe after a special investigation unit (SIT) of the Mumbai Police found CCTV footage of her meeting KP Gosavi and Sam D'souza. Chikki Panday’s name appeared up in Sam D'Souza's statement.
Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s son Aryan Khan had skipped the summons for questioning citing fever.
For the unversed, The NCB had arrested Aryan Khan and at least 19 others in the cruise drugs case last month. He was released on bail on October 30, three weeks after his arrest in the drugs-on-cruise case.
