Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan, who is out on bail in the infamous drugs case, was summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by IPS officer Sanjay Kumar Singh on November 7. However, according to an official, the starkid failed to appear as he was down with fever. While Aryan failed to appear before the SIT citing ‘slight fever’, his friend Arbaaz Merchant and co-accused Achit Kumar arrived at the NCB office and were interrogated for several hours. According to sources Aryan is expected to appear before the SIT in a day or two. An NCB officer said, ‘We are issuing summons to all the accused and people concerned in the six drug cases that are now being probed by the SIT’. The SIT, headed by the NCB’s senior officer Sanjay Kumar Singh, reached Mumbai on November 6, a day after the agency transferred to it the investigation in six cases, including the controversial cruise drugs case involving Aryan Khan. On Friday, there were reports that the Narcotics Control Bureau has issued an order to remove Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede, who is facing bribery and extortion allegations, as the lead investigator in the Mumbai cruise ship drugs seizure case, involving Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan. But an NCB official revealed that Sameer Wankhede is still very much part of the Aryan Khan case. The senior official spoke to ETimes on condition of anonymity and said, ‘The SIT formed in these six cases will only help Wankhede and team investigate these cases even better.’ The official further commented that while a certain section is happy about Wankhede’s supposed removal, he isn’t going anywhere and will continue to be a part of the case. The official then continued, ‘Sameer Wankhede and his Mumbai Zonal team will work with the SIT in the Aryan Khan and other five cases including Samir Khan and Armaan Kohli case.’ On November 5, when the news regarding the SIT broke out, it was being reported that the Narcotics Control Bureau transferred six of its cases from the Mumbai team to their Delhi counterparts, including the case involving Aryan.
