In the recent hearing on October 19, the Mumbai special court rejected Shahrukh Khan’s son’s bail plea. This is the second time that Aryan Khan is left with disappointment during the hearing. He has already spent 18 days in jail after being arrested for allegedly carrying and consuming hash. Presently, the police are keeping him lodged in the Arthur Road prison. Also, the bail plea of two other accused, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha was rejected too by the NDPS court.
On October 3rd, The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Khan along with 7 other people after raiding the cruise party at Bombay coast. They took all the individuals in custody for allegedly buying and selling drugs. Aryan was clean since he had no drugs in his possession. However, the officials didn’t spare him because of his presence at the party and they were suspicious the star kid had consumed hash.
Is Aryan Khan Regular Customer of Drugs
The biggest reason behind the rejection of Aryan’s bail plea was his alleged connection with the drug dealers. As per the statement presented by NCB to the court, Aryan Khan was involved with the drug peddlers. NCB mentioned that his WhatsApp chats tell a different story and are against his claims. The previous bail hearing resulted in the rejection of the plea because the anti-drug agency’s council said that there is promising evidence that shows khan is guilty and has been buying and consuming illegal substances for many past years. The prosecution said that Aryan Khan’s friend, Arbaaz Merchant was caught with drugs that were supposed to be consumed by both Khan and Merchant, reportedly.
Khan’s Representative Bashes NCB In Court
The representative of Aryan Khan and a senior lawyer, Amit Desai turned his guns towards NCB. He said that the bureau hasn’t presented any hard proof that can be used against the bail plea and intervene or disturb the ongoing investigation. In his argument, he mentioned that no drugs were found on Khan his chats don’t confirm his connection to the drug racket. After hearing the arguments, the special judge, VV Patil reserved orders.
No Exception for the Drug Dealers and Consumers
Aryan Khan is going through a chaotic situation since many have already considered him guilty. The reason might be his link with Bollywood as he is the son of Superstar Shahrukh Khan. The prosecutor made clear in the hearing that youngsters even star kids involved in drug dealing must be taught a lesson. On the other hand, Aryan Khan is gaining support from Bollywood celebrities including Salman Khan, Suniel Shetty Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, and Pooja Bhatt. For now, nothing is confirmed as Khan is yet to be proven guilty for the proper jail time.
