The 23-year-old son of Shah Rukh Khan has been in custody since October 3, hours after drugs raids on a cruise ship party. Aryan Khan had been denied bail twice before.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) earlier had opposed Aryan Khan’s bail plea, alleging that the 23-year-old was not just a consumer of drugs, but also involved in illicit drug trafficking and was in conscious possession of contraband.

ASG Anil Singh stated in court according to The Times of India, “My contention is he was found in possession. He was connected with drug peddlers. It was a commercial quantity. Hence we invoked 28 and 29. It was only 4 hours and they were aware of the grounds so it cannot be an illegal arrest. Conspiracy is difficult to prove. Only the conspirator knows how they conspired. I will leave to the conscience of the court.”
