The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday, 13 April, suspended two of its officers probing the cruise ship drugs case involving Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan.

The two officers, Vishwa Vijay Singh and Asshish Ranjan Prasad, were subjected to an inquiry by the NCB's vigilance team, and were found to have indulged in some "suspicious activity", India Today reported, quoting sources.

Singh was the Investigating Officer of the case, while Prasad was also a part of the team conducting the probe. However, the official reason behind their suspension is still unknown.

As many as five cases were transferred to the NCB's Special Investigation Team (SIT) following extortion allegations against the NCB team. A vigilance inquiry was also conducted, which involved the recording of statements by a number of officers, including Singh, Prasad, and Sameer Wankhede, who was the zonal director at the time.

Aryan Khan was arrested on a cruise ship in Mumbai on 3 October 2021 following a raid by the NCB. He was among 20 people charged under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

He was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on 28 October after being denied the same multiple times.
