The Narcotics Control Bureau arrested eight people on a cruise from Mumbai to Goa yesterday. This includes Aryan Khan, the son of famous actor Shah Rukh Khan, which caused a stir in Bollywood. The NCB's action has scarred many.

Aryan Khan was produced before the fort court by the NCB today. He was remanded in police custody till October 7. His lawyer Satish Maneshinde used his experience to get bail for Aryan. However, he failed to get bail.

The NCB, which arrested eight people, including Aryan Khan, made another arrest today. There were between 1300 and 1400 people on the cruise. But NCB officials were keeping an eye on 8 to 10 people. They include Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant.

The NCB was said to have acted on the basis of confidential information. The Narcotics Control Bureau did not act on a tip-off. The CISF has leaked secret information that there will be a rave party on the cruise.

After the CISF informed the rave party, the NCB came up with a complete plan for the raid. This high profile script was written a month ago.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) is responsible for the security of the Mumbai International Cruise Terminus. In the last week of September, a CISF unit received a tip-off about a party on a cruise.

The NCB was informed by CISF that a program would be aired on an Cordelia Cruise from Mumbai on October 2 at 4 pm by an entertainment TV channel. The cruise was scheduled to return to Mumbai on October 4 in the morning. Various cars on this cruise.

A Mumbai-Goa to Goa-Mumbai cruise ticket cost Rs 80,000. These tickets were being sold online. NCB zonal officer Sameer Wankhede led the operation. The NCB has conducted several successful raids so far.

As there were 1300 to 1400 passengers on the boat, the question before the NCB was how to take action. Officers could not enter the cruise by revealing their identities. Otherwise everyone would have been wary. If the NCB had started the operation before the cruise left, the accused would have been arrested.

As soon as the cruise started, the ship cut short and the AVCB officers launched a raid. The rally lasted for about 7 hours. The NCB team seized a large quantity of drugs. The NCB arrested eight people including Aryan Khan.
