Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan to remain in jail till Oct 20th while a Special Court in Mumbai on Thursday reserved its order on a bail plea.
The court was moved by cruise drug bust case which had accused Aryan Khan and others till October 20 after two days of the intense hearing. Aryan will remain in normal jail quarters along with other undertrials at the Arthur Road Jail in connection with the alleged seizure of banned drugs from a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2/3.
Aryan was moved from the quarantine center inside the jail premises to normal barracks earlier in the day just ahead of the hearing resumed.
Special NDPS court Judge V.V. Patil reserved the order after the prosecution and defense both concluded their lengthy two days exchanges. The prosecution opposed the plea on the grounds that though no drug was sized from Aryan though he was in touch with the peddler and he himself is an addict.
The defense urged the court to grant bail to the 23-year-old as no drug was found from his possession when he was arrested during the raid on October 2. The defense also said the investigation in the case is over hence he should get bail.
Aryan, Munmun Dhamecha, and Arbaaz Merchant were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau on October 3 following the raid on a Goa-bound ship, while the other five were arrested the next day. All accused are still in judicial custody.
However, there are reports that the case was planted and also that the BJP IT cell is going through great lengths to slam SRK by sharing old clips of his mentioning the rising “intolerance” of India, which is specifically shared to inflame a certain group of people.
