Mumbai/Bhubaneswar: Minutes after the bail plea of megastar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan and that of two others were rejected by a Mumbai Court, counsels of the three accused moved bail applications in the Bombay High Court today.
The Special NDPS Court in Mumbai rejected bail applications of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha a few hours before. The three accused knocked the doors of the HC for bail against the NDPS court order.
Ali Kasif, lawyer of Arbaaz, said the bail application is likely to be filed in Bombay High Court today. He further stated the two others are also likely to move bail applications in the High Court today.
The arguments in the bail pleas of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha were completed last week and Special NDPS Judge V.V. Patil had deferred the verdict till October 20.
Meanwhile, the NCB, which arrested Aryan Khan and two others in the cruise ship drug party case, has reportedly found the mention of a heroine in one of the WhatsApp chats of Aryan — who has been inside the lockup or custody for 19 nights continuously since his detention on October 2 and arrest on October 3.
The NCB has reportedly counselled him and other co-accused, offered them their religious holy books like Bhagavad Gita, Quran or Bible, Aryan reportedly is full of remorse and has promised to ‘reform’ himself after release.
In one of the most high-profile operations, Aryan Khan, along with seven others was caught when the NCB team led by Mumbai Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede swooped on an alleged rave party aboard a cruise ship on October 2 evening.
During subsequent investigations, another 12 persons, including a foreigner have been nabbed in the same case, while some others have been raided or questioned.
