Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, who was arrested in the cruise ship drugs case and was granted bail on October 28, has filed a plea for modification in his bail conditions. He has moved the Bombay High Court seeking waiver of the condition that he shall appear before the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) south Mumbai office every Friday to mark his presence.
The reason cited for removing the condition by Aryan’s lawyers is that whenever he reaches the NCB office there is a large horde of mediapersons waiting outside due to which he has to be accosted by policeman while going in and out of the office. The plea also stated that since the investigation has been transferred to a Special Investigation Team of Delhi NCB, the condition that he appears at the Mumbai office could be relaxed. The application is likely to be heard by the high court next week.
Aryan was allegedly arrested by the NCB on October 3 on charges of alleged possession, consumption and sale/purchase of drugs after a raid on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. He was arrested with two of his other friends- Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha.
He was granted bail after remaining in custody for three weeks and 14 conditions were imposed on him, including, to appear before the NCB each Friday, not to leave Mumbai without informing the agency and not to leave India without permission from the special NDPS court.
