Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan reached Arthur Road jail early on Thursday morning to meet his son Aryan Khan, whose bail plea was rejected by a special NDPS court yesterday. Aryan is currently lodged in Jail in connection with the case of seizure of banned drugs aboard a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast, Times of India (TOI) reported.
Aryan Khan has approached the Bombay High Court seeking bail in the matter. His advocates have filed an appeal in the HC, challenging the lower court’s order and will be presenting the matter before the court shortly at 10 am.
The appeal is likely to be mentioned before a single bench of Justice N W Sambre.
Aryan Khan and the others have been booked for offences under Sections 8(c), 20(b), 27, 28, 29 and 35 of the NDPS Act. They were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3 and are presently in judicial custody.
