Aryan Khan’s drug case is likely to close soon as the actor’s manager Pooja Dadlani, who is alleged to have handed over the money, is yet to appear for giving her statement.

Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s drug case is likely to close soon as the actor’s manager Pooja Dadlani, who is alleged to have handed over the money, is yet to appear for giving her statement.

A senior IPS officer told TOI, “There is no official complaint of extortion. However, so far no one has come forward for recirding the statement.”

However, the star kid was apprehended by the Narcotics Control Bureau on October 3 and got released from the Arthur Road prison on October 30.

Moreover, one of the witnesses named Kiran Gosavi, who was arrested by Pune police in October in connection with a cheating case in Pune. His bodyguard, Prabhakar Sail, had submitted a complaint before the MRA Marg police station, alleging that he had overheard Gosavi talking to one Sam D’souza about money being demanded in Aryan’s case for his release. It is alleged that Gosavi wanted to contact SRK to extort money. He with the help of D’Souza, allegedly met a hotelier, who reportedly connected him to SRK’s manager Pooja. D’souza had claimed Gosavi and others had taken Rs 50 lakh from Dadlani but returned it. However, SIT had recorded Gosavi’s statement as well.

Meanwhile, Police after receiving an application, formed an SIT and started investigating on the same.
