Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s was denied bail on Wednesday. The judge had earlier reserved the verdict for today after the hearing took place on October 14.
Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, who has been lodged in Arther road jail for the past two weeks, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau on October 2 in the drugs case. His last bail plea hearing took place on October 14 wherein the order was reserved. Special Judge VV Patil had scheduled the hearing for today and has denied bail for the star kid. Along with Aryan, his friend Arbaaz Merchant was also arrested in the alleged drugs case.
Aryan’s bail plea verdict was delivered today at a sessions court. Earlier, senior advocate Amit Desai and advocate Satish Maneshinde had submitted a bail application for Aryan’s release after the latter was shifted from the NCB’s custody to judicial custody.
Recently, Shiv Sena leader had filed a petition in the Supreme Court to open a judicial enquiry into the affairs of the NCB officials in Mumbai. He sought to protect the fundamental rights of Aryan amidst the case. The plea stated that the NCB and its officials are involved in “dirty vendetta affairs” targeting select film celebrities in the last two years.
On October 2, NCB conducted an operation on Cordelia cruise that was off the coast of Mumbai. According to Aryan’s lawyers, the 23-year-old star kid who was taken into custody along with 8 others was not in possession of any drug or narcotic substance.
Currently, around 20 persons have been arrested in the case including Aryan and his friend Arbaaz. However, the claims made by bail submission suggests that except Arbaaz, Aryan did not know anyone else on the cruise as he was an invitee. Earlier, the Metropolitan Magistrate had refused Aryan’s NCB custody and was sent to Arthur road jail.
A jail official had talked about Aryan and shared that the star kid video called his parents Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan. News agency ANI mentioned, “Drugs-on-cruise case | Aryan Khan spoke with his father Shah Rukh Khan and mother Gauri Khan via video call from inside Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail: Jail officials”.
