Aryan Khan Denied Bail By Mumbai Court In Drugs-On-Cruise Case


Guwahati: The magistrate court on Friday rejected the interim bail plea filed by Aryan Khan, son of movie star Shah Rukh Khan in relation to the NCB drug raids case.

During the hearing, NCB opposed the grant of bail to Aryan Khan on grounds including that he is an influential person and may tamper with evidence.

The court said that the applications are not maintainable before it, the bail pleas of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha were rejected.

Further, they will have to apply for bail before special NDPS court.

Lawyer Satish Maneshinde, who appeared on behalf of Aryan, opposed the ground. “Merely because person belongs to affluent family, it cannot be said that evidence will be tampered with. What influence have I used? I am suffering for 6-7 days. People roaming free with much serious offences. I am not one of those,” he said.

The court had on Thursday rejected the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) plea seeking further custody of Aryan Khan, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son, and seven others, saying simply doing this would be ” violation of their fundamental rights”. Additional Metropolitan Magistrate R M Nerlikar sent the eight to 14-day judicial custody instead.
