BCN summons Ananya Panday: Actor Ananya Panday may soon reach the headquarters of the Narcotics Control Bureau in Mumbai after being summoned by the agency. NCB raided Panday’s residence today, as a result of which she was summoned for investigation at 2 p.m. today. The agency also seized the actor’s cell phone and laptop. Today, the 22-year-old actor’s father, Chunky Pandey, revealed the family are looking for a lawyer.
âWe have not yet received any communication from Ananya Panday whether she is coming today or not. We called it today, âsaid NCB Deputy Director General Ashok Mutha Jain. It is not clear whether any banned substances were removed from Panday’s house during the raid or not. Shortly after the raid, Panday’s father was seen arriving at his apartment.
Panday is said to be friends with Aryan Khan, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan and designer Gauri Khan. Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3 along with his friend Arbaaz Khan from a cruise ship on October 3 where scores of people were found in possession of banned substances.
According to an NDTV report, Panday’s name surfaced in the WhatsApp conversations of one of the defendants in the drug trafficking case on a cruise ship. Meanwhile, Aryan Khan’s bail application was dismissed by a special Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) court on Wednesday, October 20. The Bombay High Court will now hear his bail application on October 26.
On October 21, Shah Rukh Khan made his first public appearance after his son was arrested in a suspected drug case, when he went to visit Aryan at Arthur’s prison. Read more about it here.
