Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, who was arrested earlier this month after a raid at an alleged rave party on a Goa-bound cruise ship off the Mumbai coast, is currently lodged at the Arthur Road jail. As per a Hindustan Times report, although no drugs were found in his possession, he has been accused of being a regular consumer of drugs. Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa’s lawyer Ayaz Khan, in the wake of Aryan's arrest and jail term, has revealed how his strategy was different from that of Aryan Khan’s case.
Speaking with a leading daily, Ayaz said that his clients Bharti and Haarsh had much higher quantities of drugs on them. Citing the example of Bharti-Haarsh's case, he revealed how he managed to keep his clients away from the bars. Ayaz mentioned that he ensured that the couple went into jail custody instead of the custody of the Narcotics Control Bureau.
“They were produced in court on Sunday, I immediately applied for jail custody, although the NCB wanted to take custody. Not for Bharti but they were insisting on Haarsh’s custody. They could’ve investigated a lot through Haarsh, so I made sure I got them jail custody on the first day, so that they are out of NCB custody. Getting them into JC meant we could get bail the next day, now the case is pending,” Ayaz Khan said.
Explaining why he chose this option, the advocate added, “Because you don’t know what angles can open up in the investigation. Sometimes you can fabricate evidence, sometimes you can plant evidence, sometimes you can knock out statements. Right or wrong can only be proved after the trial.”
Ayaz said the NCB had found 80 gms of contraband in Bharti and Haarsh's office and home.
For the uninitiated, last year, NCB conducted a raid at comedian Bharti Singh's house in connection with the drug probe being carried out after Sushant Singh Rajput's death. The couple was later taken for interrogation where they admitted to the consumption of Ganja.
Bharti and Haarsh were arrested under the provisions of the NDPS Act in a case of alleged possession and consumption of Ganja. Later, they were released on bail.
Talking about Aryan Khan’s case, a special court for Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act cases would pass an order on Aryan's bail plea on October 20. Also Read: Aryan Khan's Jail Term Extends As Special Court Reserves Order On Bail Plea; Swara Bhasker And Others React
