Mumbai: Bombay High Court on Thursday granted bail to Aryan Khan  after more than three weeks in jail.

The HC has granted bail to Aryan Khan in connection with the alleged cruise ship drug case.

Justice NW Sambre also allowed bail to his friends and co-accused in the matter, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. 

The  Bail was granted after hearing Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi for Aryan Khan and ASG Anil Singh for the Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB).

The 23-year-old son of Shah Rukh Khan has been in custody since October 3, hours after raids on a cruise ship party by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

Aryan Khan, who has been in Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail since October 8, had been denied bail twice before.

His lawyers had repeatedly pointed out that no drugs had been found on him.

The NCB, however, argued that he was part of a conspiracy and that his WhatsApp chats revealed his involvement in illicit drug dealings.
