The Shiv Sena leader has moved the Supreme Court seeking a judicial investigation into the affairs of Mumbai’s Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and its officials following the arrest of Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan in an alleged drug-grab from a cruise ship in Mumbai. The petition urged the High Court to automatically take note of the protection of fundamental rights of Aryan who has been booked under the NDPS Act by National Commercial Bank, District Office, Mumbai.
“I would like to point out the Malavid style, approach and dirty vendetta affairs of the National Commercial Bank of Mumbai and its officials targeting selected movie celebrities and a few models since the last couple of years and I would like to request your honor to order a special judicial investigation,” said Kishore Tiwari, leader of the Mumbai-based Shiv Sena. “The investigation to reveal the role of the central bank official.” Referring to the statement of NCP leader and Maharashtra state minister Nawab Malik, who questioned the NCB, the plea said it was time to question the NCB High Court judge to reveal the truth.

Upon tip-off that a delirious party was scheduled to take place on the ship, the NCB team raided the Goa-bound Cordelia cruise on the evening of 2 October and allegedly confiscated drugs, later making the arrests.
