Aryan Khan, the son of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, was granted bail on Thursday, October 28th, after spending over three weeks in Mumbai’s Arthur Road prison in connection with the NCB’s cruise drugs bust case. On Thursday about 3 p.m., former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, who is representing Aryan Khan, was seen arriving at the Bombay High Court. Justice Nitin Sambre presided over the hearing and delivered the verdict.

Bail was also granted to Aryan Khan’s close friend Arbaaz Merchant and model Munmun Dhamecha. On Friday, the whole order, including reasons and bail conditions, will be made public. This indicates that Aryan Khan and others still have time to get out of jail.

Following two days of arguments by Rohatgi for Aryan, senior advocate Amit Desai for Arbaaz Merchant, and advocate Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh for Munmun Dhamecha, the NCB was represented by Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh, Advocate Shreeram Shirsat, and Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Advait Sethna.

On Thursday, ASG Anil Singh rebutted Rohatgi, Desai, and Deshmukh’s arguments from the previous two days. Singh began his argument by stating that, “Aryan Khan is a regular consumer of drugs. There is evidence to prove that he has been providing drugs.”

Adding, “This case is about conscious possession and planning to consume.” He pointed out that even though the drugs were found on Arbaaz, both Aryan and Arbaaz planned to go on the cruise together. “And they say they are going inside to have a “blast”. The charas was meant for smoke during cruise journey. They were in possession though physically with Arbaaz. And it was for their consumption,” ASG Anil Singh argued.

ASG Singh also cited the Supreme Court as he said, “Supreme Court judgment says that drug menace is a more heinous crime than culpable homicide and has to be tackled stringently.”

However, Aryan’s lead counsel and former AG Rohatgi countered the conspiracy allegation and stated, “There was no conspiracy because there was no meeting of minds. There was no discussion that they met and decided that they will get the substance and smoke, that is conspiracy. Their argument is that because it is not coincidence it is a conspiracy. Conspiracy can’t have anything to do with conjecture.”

On the 3rd of October, Aryan Khan, Arbaaz, Munmun, and a number of others were arrested. On October 8, they were sent to Mumbai’s Arthur Road prison, where they have remained since.
