We Aren't Connected: Cordelia Cruise on NCB Raid that Led to Aryan Khan's Arrest
The NCB raids on the cruise on 2 October led to the arrest of Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan and several others.
Following the Narcotics Control Bureau's (NCB) raid on a party onboard Cordelia Cruises' Empress ship, Jurgen Bailom, CEO and President of Waterways Leisure Private Limited, issued a statement saying the company isn't connected to the incident in any way. NCB officials have stated that drugs were consumed at the party. Among those arrested by the agency is Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan.
"I wish to express that Cordelia Cruises is in no way, directly or indirectly, connected to this incident. Cruises had chartered its ship for a private event to a Delhi-based event management company. We condemn all acts such as these and will strictly refrain from letting our ship out for similar events in the future," read the statement which was shared by the company's handle on social media.
The statement added that Cordelia Cruises will be extending full support to the authorities in their investigation. "Cordelia Cruises is extremely mindful of providing wholesome entertainment to families who choose to travel with us. This incident is contrarian and far from the culture that Cordelia Cruises represents. We, at Cordelia Cruises, condemn all acts such as these and will strictly refrain from letting our ship out for similar events in the future. Nonetheless, Cordelia Cruises is extending our full support and cooperating with the authorities".
Earlier, NCB chief SN Pradhan had told ANI that drugs such as MDMA and charas were consumed at the party.
