Aryan Khan Released Live News: Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, was released from Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai on Saturday. He reached his residence Mannat in Bandra just before noon, where fans had lined up to welcome him. Aryan was released two days after the Bombay High Court granted him bail in connection with a drugs case; he spent 26 days in jail.
Aryan was granted bail along with two other co-accused in the case, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. While granting them bail, a single-judge bench of Justice Nitin W Sambre laid down 14 conditions for their release, including surrendering their passports immediately and “not in any manner try to delay the trial” once it begins.
On Saturday, in another development in the case, nine co-accused were granted bail by a special NDPS court, including 22-year-old Aachit Kumar, who was arrested on October 6 on charges of peddling drugs. The others included Gomit Chopra, Nupur Satija, directors of event company ‘Caneplus Trading Private Limited’, Sameer Sehgal and Gopalji Anand, along with two employees of the same company, Manav Singhal and Bhaskar Arora. Later in the day, Shreyas Nair and Ishmeet Singh Chadha, too, were granted bail.
Meanwhile, the National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) on Friday sought a response from the Maharashtra government on a letter written by NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede alleging harassment following “disclosures” made by NCP Minister Nawab Malik.
