'Stop witch-hunting SRK, have empathy': Shashi Tharoor on Aryan’s arrest in drugs case

Oct 05, 2021 11:44 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Amidst the media frenzy revolving around the sensational arrest of Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan in the Mumbai drugs-on-cruise case, Congress leader and MP from Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor has backed Bollywood superstar.

Tharoor said that he is 'repelled by the ghoulish epicaricacy' of those who are 'witch-hunting' the Bollywood superstar. 

Urging everyone to have some empathy, Tharoor said as it is the public glare is bad enough and there is no need to gleefully rub a 23 year-old’s face in it.

He further said that he is no fan of recreational drugs & hasn’t ever tried any.

Aryan Khan along with his friend Arbaaz Merchant and fashion designer Munmun Dhamecha were arrested on Sunday, after NCB officials raided a Goa-bound cruise ship late night on Saturday. 

The trio was first remanded to one-day NCB custody by a magistrate court in Mumbai, but on Monday, it was extended till October 7.
