Mehbooba Mufti slams NCB, says Aryan Khan targeted because of 'Khan' in his name

Oct 11, 2021 16:09 IST | By Editorji News Desk

PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti hit out at the Narcotics Control Bureau on Monday, weighing in on the Mumbai drugs on cruise case. Mufti said, that Aryan Khan was being targeted by law enforcement agencies because of his surname.

She attacked the BJP-led Centre for going after Aryan Khan instead of taking action against Union Minister of State Ajay Misra’s son, Ashish, accused of mowing down farmers in UP’s Lakhimpur Kheri.

"Instead of making an example out of a Union Minister’s son accused of killing four farmers, central agencies are after a 23 year old simply because his surname happens to be Khan. Travesty of justice that Muslims are targeted to satiate the sadistic wishes of BJPs core vote bank,” Mehbooba Mufti said in a tweet.

Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after being detained during a drugs bust on board a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. While he did not have any drugs in his possession, his bail plea has been denied in court. He is currently lodged in Arthur Road prison till his next bail hearing on October 13.
