Aryan Khan Bail Hearing at Bombay High Court: A special NDPS court on Wednesday rejected the bail application of actor Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan. It was on October 14 that the court, while hearing the bail plea of the 23-year-old, had reserved its order till October 20 citing Dussehra festivities and the long weekend. Apart from Aryan, the bail plea of his friend Arbaaz Merchant, and other accused were also heard today in the court. As soon as Aryan’s lawyers received the full orders from the sessions court, they moved Bombay High Court to apply for the bail. The bail hearing is now likely to take place on Thursday itself in front of justice Nitin Sambre.Also Read - Aryan Khan Arrest: Gauri Khan Instructs Mannat Staff To Not Cook Sweets, Here's Why
Aryan Khan has been under custody for 18 days now after being arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3, Sunday from an alleged rave party. Later, the court sent the star kid under judicial custody at the Arthur Road jail. On Wednesday, Aryan’s lawyer argued in the sessions court that nothing has been recovered from the star kid during the arrest and therefore, there’s no case against him, while the NCB argued for the extension of the custody saying that his links need to be investigated further to find out about alleged peddlers. The Additional Solicitor General, Anil Singh, told the court that they have found Aryan’s links with illicit procurement and distribution of contraband.
