Exclusive: India Today TV has accessed the incriminating WhatsApp chats exchanged between Aryan Khan and Ananya Panday where the two discussed procuring drugs.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been questioning Ananya Panday and Aryan Khan over their WhatsApp conversations discussing drugs. India Today TV has accessed some of these chats in which Aryan Khan and Ananya Panday discussed procuring drugs.
In another chat exchange, Aryan Khan mockingly threatened his friends with getting the NCB to act against them. The NCB is now using these chats to question the two. While Aryan Khan is currently lodged at the Arthur Road prison, NCB has conducted two rounds of questioning with Ananya Panday.
India Today TV has now accessed these chats that the NCB is holding as “incriminating evidence” in the Mumbai cruise drugs bust case.
What are the WhatsApp chats about?
In the WhatsApp chats, Aryan Khan talks about buying drugs in bulk from one Achit Kumar. Aryan Khan had ordered drugs (weed) worth Rs 80,000 from Achit Kumar.
The WhatsApp data recovered from Aryan Khan’s phone also shows group chats on drugs with two others. NCB also has access to Aryan Khan’s chats with three other celebrity kids apart from Ananya Panday.
NCB has learned that there are some drug peddlers and suppliers who are expanding their operations and trying to penetrate into Bollywood and the glam world.
What do the chats say?
The first incriminating chat messages date back to July 2019. In these WhatsApp chats, Ananya Panday and Aryan Khan discussed drugs, which Aryan mentioned as a weed. To this, Ananya said that it’s in demand.
Aryan Khan then said, “I will take it from you in secret” and Anaya replied, “Fine”.
Ananya: it’s in Demand
Aryan: I will take it from you in secret
According to the NCB, prima facie it appears that Ananya Panday was a small-quantity supplier for Aryan Khan
A second chat from the same date shows Ananya writing to Aryan, “Now I am in the business.”
Ananya: now that I am in the business
Aryan: you brought the weed?
Ananya: I am getting it
In the latest chat recovered by the NCB, dated 04.18.2021, Aryan Khan asked two of his friends about cocaine.
Aryan – Let’s get cocoain tommorrow (sic)
Aryan – I am getting you guys f****d.
Aryan – By NCB
Ironically, Aryan Khan threatened his friends with the name NCB. The drugs control agency nabbed him along with 8 others from a Mumbai cruise ship on October 3 and arrested him a day later. It has been over three weeks that he has been in custody in the drugs case.
On Tuesday, the Bombay High Court will be hearing his bail application after the session court rejected the plea last week.
