Aryan Khan drug scandal

All eyes are on Thursday bail hearing as the Mumbai sessions court will decide the fate of Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in the cruise drug scandal.

The sessions courts, which is currently hearing the case of Aryan Khan, adjourned Wednesday without granting bail to the 23-year-old.

As the session has now resumed, NCB counsel ASG Anil Singh is leading forth his arguments that oppose Aryan’s bail plea.

“He is not a consumer for the first time,” says ASG. “And has been a regular consumer of drugs for the last few years. The panchanama clearly establishes that he was in conscious possession of contraband as he admitted the charas was in possession of Arbaaz Merchant and that they were going to smoke it on the cruise. So it may not be right to say he was not found in possession of any drugs,” he stated.

“Both were in touch with peddler Aachit Kumar. He was in touch with a foreign national and we are taking assistance of MEA and also written to our head of Department in Delhi,” ASG continues.

Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3 in connection with the seizure of banned drugs onboard a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has accused Aryan of consuming drugs, while his counsel has maintained that no drugs were found with his client during raids.
