Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan Friday marked his weekly attendance before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Mumbai in connection with the cruise ship drugs case.
Aryan was released on bail granted by the Bombay High Court on October 30 after spending three weeks at the Arthur Road prison.
As per one of the bail conditions set by the high court, Aryan Khan reached the NCB office at Ballard Estate in south Mumbai around 12.15 pm, reports quoted an official saying.
Videos being shared online showed Aryan walking into the NCB office without stopping for reporters and paparazzi, who were calling out his name.
The 23-year-old son of the Bollywood superstar was arrested by the NCB on October 3 following a raid on the cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. The central agency had booked him under relevant sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act for possession, consumption, sale/purchase of banned drugs and conspiracy and abetment.
He was granted bail by the high court on October 28. However, he could not be released from the prison till October 30 as as documents related to his release did not reach jail authorities in time.
Last Friday, the high court had made available its operative order in which it imposed 14 bail conditions on Aryan Khan and his co-accused in the case, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, who were also granted bail, stipulating their release on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh each with one or two sureties of the same amount.
In the five-page order, the high court said the trio will have to surrender their passports before the NDPS court and shall not leave India without taking permission from the special court and will have to attend the NCB office each Friday between 11 am and 2 pm to mark their presence.
