Bombay High Court grants bail to Aryan Khan accused in Mumbai drugs case

Aryan Khan has been granted bail after more than three weeks in jail, by the Bombay High Court.

The 23-year-old son of Shah Rukh Khan has been in custody since October 3, hours after raids on a cruise ship party by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Aryan Khan, who has been in Mumbai's Arthur Road jail since October 8, had been denied bail twice before.

His lawyers had repeatedly pointed out that no drugs had been found on him. The NCB, however, argued that he was part of a conspiracy and that his WhatsApp chats revealed his involvement in illicit drug dealings.

Aryan Khan's friend Arbaaz Merchant, and model Munmum Dhamecha, were also granted bail.

Aryan Khan's defense team included former Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi, who argued his case before the Bombay High Court.

After getting the bail order from the court, Former AG Mukul Rohatgi said to the news reporter, “For me, it is a regular case – to win some, to lose some. I am happy that he (Khan) has got bail.”
