Officials of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) visited the residence of film actor Shah Rukh Khan on Thursday in connection with their investigation into a cruise drugs party case, sources said.

The actor's son, Aryan Khan, was arrested with a few others on October 3 after the NCB raided a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast and claimed to have seized drugs, including charas.

The NCB team, led by senior officials of the agency, visited Shah Rukh Khan's residence 'Mannat' in suburban Bandra in the afternoon for some paperwork, sources said.

Another team of the NCB also visited actor Ananya Pandey's residence in Bandra, they said.

Pandey has been asked to appear before the NCB on Thursday to record her statement, sources said.

Earlier in the day, Shah Rukh Khan met son Aryan at the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai where the latter has been lodged.

A special court here on Wednesday denied bail to Aryan, observing that 'on the face of it', he was indulging in "illicit drug activities on a regular basis".

Aryan then moved the Bombay High Court, which will hear his bail plea on October 26.  PTI
