New Delhi: Hearing on the bail of superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was held in Mumbai Sessions Court. The court did not grant bail to Aryan even today, the verdict was reserved on October 20, 2021, i.e. now the hearing on bail will be held on October 20. Meanwhile, NCB is continuously interrogating Aryan Khan along with other accused in the Rave Party drugs case.
Verdict reserved on Aryan’s bail
The court has reserved the verdict on Aryan Khan’s bail, now the decision on bail will come on October 20. With this it was decided that Aryan will have to stay in jail till October 20 for the time being.
‘Department has crossed the legal line’
Amit Desai said, in a High Court case, the ASG had said that strict action should be taken against celebrities and influencers. On this the High Court had said ‘I don’t agree, everyone is equal before the law. Each case has to be decided in its own merit despite the status of the accused.’ Similarly, the department has crossed the legal line regarding my client, so that the court does not grant bail. Also assume that there is a confession of consumption. Aryan’s lawyer said, in this case the maximum punishment can be 1 year. This will be discussed continuously during the trial.
Anil Desai’s argument in defense of Aryan
During the bail hearing, Aryan Khan’s lawyer Amit Desai said, the ASG did not read a judgment dated August 24, 2021, in which the Bombay High Court, in view of the young age of the accused, said that they should be given an opportunity of reformation and if it is repeated. If this happens in future then action should be taken. That is, the court had given relief in view of the age.
The lawyer on behalf of NCB said, “Investigation is going on in Aryan Khan’s case, it is too early to say who is involved and who is not.” We have enough documents to show. Aryan and Arbaaz have admitted that they used to take drugs. NCB has opposed the bail plea. NCB has cited different orders to the court.
The hearing on the Aryan Khan drug case was halted in the court. After the lunch break is over, the hearing has started again. The lawyers of both the sides are presenting their arguments before the judge.
The hearing on the Aryan Khan drug case has stopped in the court. The hearing has been stopped due to lunch break. The hearing will resume at 2.45 pm.
NCB says, ‘The sections imposed on Aryan Khan are non-bailable. Giving bail would not be the right decision. Advocate Anil Singh says that it would be wrong to say that Aryan did not get anything. NCB has enough evidence to show it.
The lawyer representing NCB further said, ‘Yesterday I heard the lawyer of the accused saying that use means to consume. This is not correct. Use means that it can be used for anything other than personal consumption. That is, by definition it was not used for its consumption.’
The lawyer appearing for the NCB claims that when the investigating officer asked him whether he had drugs, Arbaaz Merchant told that he had drugs in his shoes, which were removed. On investigation of drugs, it was found that it is charas and Arbaaz admitted that both of them consume it and they were going to consume it in Rev Party. Aryan also admitted that he consumes charas and the charas caught was for these two (Aryan and Arbaaz), which they were about to consume in the party. Therefore to say that nothing was received from Aryan, it would be wrong. Apart from this, WhatsApp chats have come to the fore, in which hard drugs were being talked about, which was in high quantity. It cannot be just for consumption.
Hearing on the bail plea of Shahrukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan has started. NCB claims that they have strong evidence against the accused. The investigation is in the initial stage and it is going on. The arrest has been made on the basis of evidence. NCB also says that these accused have been taking drugs.
NCB has clearly said that Aryan Khan is not consuming drugs for the first time, the statement received shows that he used to consume it for the last few years. Drugs have been found from Arbaaz Merchant. Aryan was with him. It is also clearly written in the Panchnama that both were about to consume drugs.
The court will remain closed on Saturday and Sunday, which will be compensated on October 23 and 27. Apart from this, the court will also remain closed on Friday and Monday due to public holidays. Accordingly, the court will be closed for a total of four days. In such a situation, even if Aryan Khan gets bail, he will have to spend at least 4 more days in jail.
In the case of the man who took selfie with Aryan Khan, the officials said that the Pune Police has issued a lookout circular against a person who was seen in a viral selfie with Aryan Khan at the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office. Lookout circular has also been issued. This notice was said that this person cannot leave the country. The name of the person has surfaced in a fraud case of 2018. All airports have been alerted for this. The name of this person is Kiran Gosavi.
Hearing on Aryan Khan’s bail plea will start in some time from now. Satish Manshinde has reached the court. The NCB team has also reached the sessions court. The matter will be heard in the Mumbai Sessions Court.
The petitioner has said in his petition, ‘Aryan is a star kid. His bail petition is being given a lot of importance and the charges on him will have a bad impact on the society. On this, the legal team of Aryan Khan said, ‘The intervention petition that has been filed is not valid.’
Aryan Khan’s legal team has to say on this, ‘The petitioner is not the affected party in this case. This third party is an unknown person and thus cannot file an intervention petition. If he is really a social worker then has he filed such intervention petition in any other case. This is just a publicity stunt. Therefore this petition should be dismissed. During the hearing in this case, the petition was dismissed.

The corona report of these seven accused had come negative and according to the rules, the time of one week has been completed.
