‘Let him be a free man. Let strict conditions be imposed upon him. But this is a fit case for bail,’ said Aryan Khan’s lawyer in the court today, but the starkid will still have to remain in the Arthur Road jail for at least a week now. It’s again not a good news for Shah Rukh Khan and family, as the Mumbai sessions court has reserved the order in the cruise ship drug case and the judgement will be announced on October 20. Aryan’s lawyer, Amit Desai, while pushing for his bail today, lauded NCB’s efforts in curbing drug menace, while the anti-drug agency continued to oppose the starkid’s bail plea in the special court. According to NCB, the evidence prove that SRK’s son is a regular consumer of drugs since a couple of years and granting him bail might lead to ‘tampering of evidence’ as they have recovered contraband from Aryan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant. NCB told the court that, ‘Both were in touch with peddler Aachit Kumar. He was in touch with a foreign national and we are taking assistance from the MEA and also written to our head of Department in Delhi.’ While Aryan’s lawyer, in his argument stated that, ‘WhatsApp chats are supposed to be private conversations. But I am told there are no messages or conversations on the mobile about the rave party.’ He further says that there is always a possibility that casual conversations between friends on WhatsApp may appear suspicious.’ While raising some questions in front of the court Aryan’s lawyer added, ‘The mobile phone was seized but there is no seizure panchnama? If they believe that the contents of the mobile are important, they have it. Why curtail my liberty?
