Ananya Panday : Aryan Khan arrives before NCB for second day


Ananya Panday was summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau for questioning on October 21. She was called for interrogation after her name cropped up in WhatsApp chats recovered from Aryan Khan’s mobile. And according to the latest update, Ananya’s name has been tied to a drugs chat.

The NCB showed Ananya her chats with Aryan Khan where Aryan had asked her if arrangements for drugs could be made. To this, Ananya had replied: “I will raise” the matter. However, the report stated that there is no evidence of Ananya arranging the banned substance for Aryan Khan.

When confronted, Ananya said she was just joking with Aryan Khan. The NCB also claimed that Ananya and Aryan regularly talked about drugs on chats. Also, sources have revealed Ananya has denied all allegations around using and procuring contraband substances.
