Aryan Khan, the 23-year-old son of Shah Rukh Khan, on December 10, urged the Bombay HC to change a bail condition under the "Cruise Drug Case". In his written appeal, Khan asked to change the condition of weekly visit (every Friday) to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office in South Bombay. However, the court is likely to review the plea next week.
In an order issued on November 20, the Bombay High Court stated that there is no evidence of a drug-related conspiracy involving Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha. Nothing improper was found in their WhatsApp chats, added the court. "There is hardly any positive evidence on record to convince this Court that all the accused persons with common intention agreed to commit an unlawful act," the order read.
Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan, who was accused in the drug on cruise case, was released from Mumbai's Arthur Road jail, on October 30. The Bombay High Court on October 29, granted him bail with certain conditions, which includes him appearing before NCB each Friday. Reportedly, Actor Juhi Chawla appeared as Aryan's Surety, signing a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh.
Prabhakar Sail was summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau as a witness in the cruise drug case on October 27. Sail is the bodyguard of Kiran Gosavi, an NCB witness. He claimed that Rs 50 lakh was taken by Kiran from an "individual" after the raid at the cruise ship. “He will be questioned by NCB team reaching Mumbai from Delhi tomorrow, in connection with his allegations of corruption,” said NCB.
In the latest development in the drugs on cruise case, the hearing of Aryan Khan's bail application was adjourned by the Bombay High Court for the next day in Mumbai on October 26. Reportedly, Aryan Khan moved to the High Court after a special court in Mumbai refused to grant bail to him and two others, on October 20. So far, 20 people have been arrested in the case.
Ananya Panday has been summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau for the second day in a row on October 22. Reportedly, WhatsApp chats between Aryan Khan and Panday have shown a connection between the two. However, the case is still underway with the arrest of 20 people, along with Aryan Khan. Further, a 24-year-old drug peddler was also questioned on October 22.
