The Bombay High Court has finally issued Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s bail order, which was granted days after he was released on bail in the ongoing drugs case. The Narcotics Control Bureau detained Aryan, Arbaaz Merchantt, and Munmun Dhamecha in October of this year during a raid on a cruise ship. Despite the fact that Aryan was interrogated by the investigating agency, the bail order now reads that there is no evidence of conspiracy against the three.
The court stated in the bail order that nothing improper was found in the Whatsapp talks between Aryan, Munmun, and Arbaaz.
“There is hardly any positive evidence on record to convince this Court that all the accused persons with common intention agreed to commit unlawful act. Merely because Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha were travelling in the same cruise, that by itself cannot be a foundation for the charge of conspiracy against them”, the court stated.
The court ruled in the 14-page judgement that the evidence presented by the Narcotics Control Bureau does not have any positive evidence against the defendants.
Soon after the bail order was out, filmmaker Sanjay Gupta, who has been supporting Aryan Khan since the beginning tweeted, “So Aryan Khan is and was innocent says Bombay High Court. Who compensates for what he went through, his family went through”.
Aryan was granted bail on October 28 and was released on October 30 after spending around 22 days in the jail.
