Aryan Khan’s bail came as a huge relief after spending nearly three weeks in Arthur Road Jail. And as per the bail condiction issued by the Bombay HC, Aryan Khan was marking his attendance at the NCB office in Mumbai every Friday.
But now his lawyers are seeking to remove the condition from the bail plea, and the matter was taken to the court hearing on Wednesday afternoon, which further added Aryan’s Advocate Amit Desai’s argument in the court. He said, “We are seeking modification of bail condition ‘J’ regarding attendance on Friday. Nothing is happening. Whenever they want he can be summoned. The Bombay branch is also not in the matter after SIT.”
Justice Nitin Sambre in his orders mentioned that circumstances warrant modification of bail conditions “I and J”. For the unversed, the ‘I’ as per the bail order reads – “If the Applicants/ Accused have to go out of Greater Mumbai, they shall inform the Investigating officer; and shall give their itinerary to the investigating officer.”
While condition ‘J’ as per the bail order reads, “Applicants/Accused shall attend the NCB Mumbai office on each Friday between 11.00 am to 2.00 pm to mark their presence.” The report now quoted the bench on modification of condition ‘I’ saying, “As far as conditions for travel outside Mumbai are concerned, the applicant should submit his itinerary to the investigation officer.”
Aryan Khan along with Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha were released on bail on October 29. They were arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau in a drugs bust case.
