Mumbai-cruise-ship drugs case: Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan's judicial custody extended till October 30

Yet another setback for Aryan Khan in the Mumbai cruise ship drugs case. A Mumbai court has now extended the judicial custody of Aryan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan till October 30 in the case, as per reports. Along with the star kid, the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances court extended the custody of the seven other accused in the case. Aryan, who was arrested on October 3 following a drug raid by the NCB on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast, is currently lodged at Mumbai's Arthur Road jail. During the raid on the cruise ship, the anti-drugs agency reportedly claim to have seized 13 grams of cocaine, 5 grams of MD, 21 grams of charas, 22 pills of MDMA and Rs 1.33 lakh in caseh from the accused. Aryan was initially remanded to NCB's custody but was sent to judicial custody for 14 days on October 7. On October 20, the special NDPS court denied to grant Aryan Khan bail, while making a note that he was indulging in 'illicit drug activities on a regular basis'. The special NDPS Act court made many observations in its 21-page order. It noted that WhatsApp chats of Aryan Khan prima facie revealed that he was 'dealing in illicit drug activities' regularly which is why it could not be said that he was not likely to commit a similar offence if released on bail. It also stated that Aryan was aware that his friend and co-accused Arbaaz Merchant was in possession of drugs, and hence there was 'conscious possession' despite the NCB not finding any drugs on Aryan himself. Following this, Aryan Khan's lawyers approached the High Court, which will hear his bail petition on October 26. Meanwhile, Aryan's father SRK, who had been maintaining a low profile since his arrest, on October 21, visited him in Arthur Road jail. According to a report in a news portal, Shah Rukh Khan got around 18 minutes with Aryan and they interacted through an intercom in the presence of jail authorities. Report also stated that Aryan Khan was visibly emotional during the meeting.
