New Delhi: Bollywood actress Ananya Pandey on Thursday appeared before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after being summoned by the agency in the Mumbai cruise drugs case. The NCB had traced Ananya’s phone chat with Aryan during the investigation of the case. Ananya Pandey reached NCB office for questioning at 4 pm. The NCB has also confiscated his laptop and mobile phone.
NCB DDG Ashok Mutha Jain had earlier said, “We are yet to receive any information from Ananya Pandey whether she is coming today or not. We called him today.”
“Raids were conducted at his residence today, but we cannot tell what was seized,” Jain said.
Meanwhile, Ananya Pandey’s father Chunky Pandey has said that the family is taking legal advice from Ananya to answer the NCB summons.
Ananya is the daughter of actor Chunky Pandey and has worked in many Hindi films. Ananya Pandey made her Bollywood debut in 2019 with the film ‘Student of the Year 2’.
Ananya Panday was supposed to shoot for an advertisement in the next few days. The shooting has been stopped after the NCB team arrived and raided his residence in Mumbai on Thursday.
Ananya Pandey has been summoned by the NCB in connection with the probe into the Mumbai cruise drugs case in which Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan and others were arrested earlier this month.
Aryan Khan’s bail plea was rejected by a Mumbai court on Wednesday, following which he moved the Bombay High Court for relief.
NCB visited Chunky Panday’s house. Three NCB officials, including a female officer, served a summons to Ananya Panday. The actress was asked to appear before the NCB at their office on the same day at 2 pm for further questioning. Meanwhile, another NCB team visited Shah Rukh Khan’s Mumbai residence, Mannat. The search operation followed right after the central agency submitted chat messages of Aryan Khan with an “upcoming Bollywood actress” to a Mumbai court, and claimed that both were discussing drugs. Ananya shares a close bond with Aryan and Suhana and the trio often hangs out together at parties and events. Here are some pics of them together.
