Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Wednesday allowed Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan's plea seeking modifications in his bail conditions in the drug racket case. A single Bench of Justice Nitin Sambre, Bombay High Court, exempted him from appearing before the Narcotics Control Bureau's (NCB) office every Friday.
Justice Nitin Sambre said while he need not go to the NCB headquarters here on Fridays, Aryan Khan must remain present before the NCB Special Investigation Team of Delhi whenever required, subject to a 72-hour advance notice given to him.
On Aryan Khan's plea for travelling outside Mumbai, the court said he must submit his itinerary to the investigation officer in advance.
His lawyer senior Advocate Amit Desai had sought modification to the bail condition since the matter is now being handled by the Delhi SIT, and the celeb-son faced huge problems in commuting each Friday owing to the huge media presence.
Mumbai NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede and his team raided luxury ship Cordelia Cruise in Mumbai on October 1 and detained Aryan Khan, along with others.
Although no drugs were recovered from him, Aryan Khan spent almost four weeks in the NCB and judicial custody till he was granted bail on October 28. The Mumbai drugs case case was further handed over to the agency's SIT-Delhi for further probe. During the subsequent probe, 20 persons were arrested and most of them are now on bail.
