Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on Thursday in connection with a drug bust case onboard a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 3. Arbaaz Merchant and Munmum Dhamecha have also been granted bail, multiple reports said. The accused, however, will not be released from jail tonight, a report published in Indianexpress.com said. The court will pass detailed orders by Friday evening.
Senior advocate and former attorney general of India Mukul Rohatgi, appearing on behalf of Aryan, had concluded his arguments on Tuesday. According to a report in IndianExpress.com, Mukul Rohatgi on Tuesday argued that no drug recovery has been made from Aryan Khan, and no medical test has shown that he consumed drugs. SRK had moved the High Court after both Magistrate and Sessions courts rejected Aryan's bail plea.
Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan, along with a few others, was arrested by the NCB on October 3 in connection with the seizure of banned drugs onboard a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. Aryan was sent to 14-day judicial custody on October 7 and has been lodged at the Arthur Road jail since then.
Following Aryan Khan's arrest, several stars came forward to show their support to SRK and Gauri. This includes Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Bhatt, among others.
Several celebrities, including R Madhavan, Sonu Sood and Swara Bhasker, reacted to Aryan's bail plea verdict too.
Taking to Twitter, Madhavan wrote, “Thank god. As a father I am So relieved .. … May all good and positive things happen.”
