The Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) special public prosecutor in cases, including the Cordelia cruise ship drug raid in which actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was booked and the FIR against late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmate, has tendered his resignation from the central agency.
The resignation letter has been submitted to a senior official of the NCB. The NCB director general will take a final call on the resignation, said an official.
Earlier this week, Advait Sethna had informed a special court that he has tendered his resignation from the NCB’s panel of prosecutors due to health issues. The court was told that the NCB will decide on his plea and the further course of action regarding the cases assigned to him. He will, however, continue to remain the prosecutor in the cases assigned to him till a decision is taken on his resignation. When contacted, Sethna refused to comment on the development.
