The Bombay high court on Tuesday will hear actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s bail plea in Mumbai cruise drug case.
Last week, a special court in Mumbai said Aryan Khan’s WhatsApp chats indicated “he is dealing in illicit drug activities of narcotic substances on a regular basis”, so it could not be said he is not likely to commit similar offences while on bail.
The court had also said that the material placed on record points to a “nexus” between Aryan Khan and suppliers and peddlers.
Though no drugs were found on Aryan Khan, the court said he knew about six grams of charas hidden in his friend Arbaaz Merchant’s shoe, and this amounted to “conscious possession”.
Lawyers Satish Maneshinde and Amit Desai, appearing for Aryan Khan, argued in court that the NCB was “misinterpreting” his WhatsApp chats to implicate him.
