Cruise Drugs Case: No bail for Aryan Khan today, next hearing on wednesday

The court instructed the NCB to do so by Wednesday morning instead, rescheduling Aryan Khan’s bail plea hearing to Wednesday. Asserting Aryan Khan’s case, lawyer Amit Desai had petitioned that his bail plea be heard today.

SRK’s son Aryan Khan did not earn bail today, that was his third try since his arrest a week back in the drugs-on-cruise case. His bail petition will now get heard on Wednesday after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) gives its testimony to the court.

Aryan Khan, the 23-year-old son of actor Shah Rukh Khan, has been in a Mumbai cell since Friday. He and his friend Arbazz Merchant were was part of the nine people arrested by anti-drugs officials as they raided a cruise party.

However, the anti-drugs agency had requested the court to extend his detention till Friday for more time to file its response. The court instructed the NCB to do so by Wednesday morning instead, rescheduling Aryan Khan’s bail plea hearing to Wednesday. Asserting Aryan Khan’s case, lawyer Amit Desai had petitioned that his bail plea be heard today. No drugs were found on him, the lawyer told.

“The offense involves only a one-year sentence. For this child, seven days is not suitable,” Mr. Desai had explained. But the NCB argued it was not ready with its testimony today. Aryan Khan’s last plea for bail was denied by a magistrate who approved the anti-drugs agency argument that his court did not have the jurisdiction to conclude.

So far, the NCB has insisted that Aryan Khan’s release can harm its investigations as he could alter with evidence and try to affect witnesses. The agency has alleged that Aryan Khan needs to be questioned along with others arrested in the case.

Aryan Khan’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde pointed up in court that no drugs or any material to indicate a conspiracy had been set upon him and he could not be clubbed with the other accused.
