Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, will remain in jail as the Mumbai Sessions Court announced he would issue an order on his bail application on October 20.
On Wednesday, the Mumbai court adjourned the hearing on Aryan Khan and others’ bail applications for today, October 14.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), in its response filed Wednesday in the special court, said the agency’s investigation revealed Aryan Khan’s role in the illicit purchase and distribution of contraband.
In its response, NCB mentioned that documents collected during the investigation mainly revealed that Aryan Khan has a role to play in relation to the illicit sourcing and distribution of contraband. In its response, the BCN mentions that it is at first glance revealed that Aryan Khan used to procure contraband from Arbaaz Merchantt and sources related to Arbaaz Merchant, the conscious possession of which (shoes) 6 grams of Charas was recovered. Aryan and Arbaaz have been associated in a mobile / close collaboration with each other, which is enough to attract infringements, most notably article 29 of the NDPS law.
NCB further mentioned that there are documents proving that Aryan was in contact with people overseas who appear to be part of an international drug network for the illicit purchase of drugs.
On Wednesday, Aryan Khan and five other defendants, who were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with a drug raid case, were transferred to the joint cell at Arthur Road Prison in Mumbai after their Covid report has turned negative.

A total of 20 people, including two Nigerian nationals, have so far been arrested in the drug seizure case following a raid at a party on a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai October 2.
