In the drugs-on-cruise case, the Bombay High Court today granted Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan Bail. Mukul Rohatgi, India's former Attorney General represented the star son. He was the lead attorney, along with Satish Maneshinde. Senior counsel Amit Desai was also present in court.
Bail was also granted to Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. Aryan, detained on October 3, was granted bail on the 25th day after his detention. The judge has postponed Aryan Khan's detailed bail order until tomorrow. This means he will not be released today.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had objected to Aryan Khan's bail application. They claimed that Aryan was not only a drug user but also involved in the possession of contraband. ASG Anil Singh stated in court, "My contention is he was found in possession. He was connected with drug peddlers. It was a commercial quantity. Hence we invoked 28 and 29. It was only 4 hours and they were aware of the grounds so it cannot be an illegal arrest. Conspiracy is difficult to prove. Only the conspirator knows how they conspired. I will leave to the conscience of the court."
On October 3, Aryan Khan and seven others were arrested after the NCB stormed a drugs bust on a luxury cruise. The celebrity son is currently in prison on Arthur Road. Now, Aryan’s bail has been granted and the star son will be out of prison by tomorrow.
