Mumbai: The leader of Shiv Sena Kishore Tiwari has moved the Supreme Court requesting a suo moto intervention to protect the fundamental rights of Aryan Khan.
Through the letter, the Shiv Sena leader also sought a judicial inquiry against an NCB officer who has been targeting Bollywood celebrities with "malafide" intentions.
The letter read, "I am most respectfully submitting the present petition with the humble request to Your Honour to take suo moto cognizance as the law enforcement agencies – NCB under NDPS Act is abusing position and trying to deprive the basic Human Rights of the person accused under NDPS Act and by misconstruing the provisions of the law, the poor, innocent people are being put behind the bars."
The letter also highlighted the fact that the wife of the NCB officer in question is a Marathi actress who had failed to make a mark in Bollywood. The letter also stated that, considering the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case, it was only natural that the NCB officer was trying to settle a personal vendetta.
"This ongoing NCB operations seems out of a personal vendetta only. In past 15-18 months, what (is the) motive for targeting only top film personalities, their families, national-international models, producers-directors, etc., Starting from the Sushant Singh Rajput death matter, the probe is totally diverted in an unrelated direction," the letter read.
The letter further stated, "The malafide, autocratic, style, approach and dirty vendetta affairs of NCB officer at Mumbai, targeting select film celebrity and few models since last two years is also a matter of big concern given a fact that officer's wife at Mumbai is also a film celebrity having direct competition with the models & film celebrities against whom her husband NCB official is taking action under NDPS Act.
"It is painful to note that its incredible that someone remains inside (jail) for so many days without seizure of drugs or any other proof. No medical report of consumption, so no consumption. I am very much surprised that how can Aryan be held in custody, when the maximum sentence would be one year, even assuming that he has taken drugs, but his fundamental rights guaranteed under Part III of our Constitution are to be protected till his conviction under NDPS Act.
"I most respectfully pray to take suo moto cognizance on top priority to protect the fundamental Human Rights of Mr. Aryan Shahrukh Khan, an accused under the crime registered by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), Mumbai under Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt of India, New Delhi and also order judicial enquiry and investigation in to the malafide role and vendetta style of working of NCB officer whose wife is in competition with other film celebrity/ model against whom NDPS Act action taken by this biased NCB officer."
