A special Mumbai court will today pronounce its orders on bail applications filed by Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, in the drugs-on-cruise case.
Aryan’s parents Shah Rukh and Gauri have been praying a lot. They haven’t been getting much sleep. If their son doesn’t get bail today, they wouldn’t know what to do, says a close friend of the star couple. They want Aryan to be under house arrest for at least two months. No parties, no late nights. Not even outings with friends. Aryan will have to be very careful of the company that he keeps from now, and his parents will make sure of that, the family friend informs.
Meanwhile, Apart from Aryan seven others including Arbaaz Merchant and model Munmun Dhamecha were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3.
Aryan (23) is currently lodged in Arthur Road prison in Mumbai after he was arrested by the NCB following the alleged drug seizure from a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2.
In previous hearing in the case, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh, appearing for the NCB, argued that there was need to take a “serious view” of drug abuse among youngsters, and that the principle of innocent until proven guilty does not apply under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. “The present applicant (Aryan) is not a consumer for the first time. The evidence placed before the court shows that he is a regular consumer of contraband for the last few years.
