On October 3, the case made headlines when Shahrukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB. Let us add that Aryan Khan was arrested after a raid on the cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. At that time, the central agency had booked the superstar’s son under relevant sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act for consumption, possession, sale/purchase of banned drugs, and conspiracy and abutment.
After being imprisoned for almost a month, the Bombay High Court granted him bail on October 28. The High court had reportedly imposed almost 14 bail conditions on the actor and the other accused including Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant. The duo was also granted bail by HC. Releasing the five-page order, the High Court had said that before the NDPS court, all the three accused will have to surrender their passports. T
he HC said in the five-page decision that the trio must surrender their passports to the NDPS court, that they must not leave India without permission from the special court, and that they must go to the NCB office every Friday between 11 AM and 2 PM to register their presence.
