New Delhi: There is no evidence linking actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan to an international drug conspiracy, according to sources, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has found.

An NCB team led by the then Mumbai zone chief Sameer Wankhede had raided the yacht, where a drug party was allegedly going on on the intervening night of October 2 and 3.
Aryan Khan and a few others were detained by the team on charges of drug conspiracy and taking drugs.
Khan was arrested by the NCB team on October 3. After interrogation, he was sent to judicial custody. His first bail was rejected by the trial court.
