- Shah Rukh Khan visited his son, who is in Arthur jail, Mumbai.
- Aryan bail plea rejected by the court.
- Whatsapp chat confirmed the involvement of Aryan Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan today visited Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail to meet with his child Aryan Khan, who was denied bail yesterday and has been in prison since October 8 in the drug case on the cruise party.
This was the first meeting between Sharukh Khan and his 23-year-old child, who was captured after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) struck a rave party on a cruise ship on October 2.
SRK went through around 20 minutes at the prison. His visit followed the Maharashtra government facilitating limitations on prison visits in the midst of the pandemic.
Aryan Khan has been denied bail twice. The Bombay High Court will hear his bail demand on Tuesday.
Aryan had spoken with his parents, SRK and Gauri Khan, on a video call on Friday.
The court yesterday denied Aryan Khan bail saying his WhatsApp text seemed to uncover his association in “unlawful drug exercises”.
Whatsapp text between Aryan and drug peddler shows that he was constantly in touch with them.
The court said that however no drug was found with Aryan Khan, but he knew that around six grams of charas were concealed in his companion Arbaaz Merchant’s shoe.
In all accused, some were friends for long. On October 2 also they were traveling together on the ship. And in the statement to NCB, they confessed that they were possessing drugs and just for enjoyment.
NCB has tightened its arms around drug peddlers since Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
