The Bombay High Court today granted bail to Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in the drugs-on-cruise case. The star son was represented by Mukul Rohatgi, the former Attorney General of India (AGI). He was the lead counsel along with Satish Maneshinde and senior counsel Amit Desai was also present in court for the hearing before Justice Nitin Sambre.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) 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.
NCB also claimed that Aryan Khan and a woman named Pooja Dadlani, Shah Rukh Khan’s manager, were tampering with the evidence and witnesses in the case in an attempt to derail the investigation.
Previously, Aryan’s lawyers had argued in court that he was not found to be in possession of any contraband and was attending the party as a VVIP invitee.
