Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan finally walked out of Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail three weeks after being arrested in drugs-on-cruise case. Aryan was received by his father and security head Ravi Singh. Aryan came out of the prison shortly after 11 am, a day after a special court issued his release memo. Immediately after walking out of the prison, he entered a waiting car and drove to his house Mannat in suburban Bandra, 12 km away.
Shah Rukh Khan’s actor-friend Juhi Chawla stood as surety for his 23-year-old son before the special court, designated to hear cases related to the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS).
It is learnt they will be heading straight home to Mannat.
while granting bail the HC imposed 14 conditions on him, including bond payment of Rs 1 lakh and weekly visit to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office in Mumbai.
Earlier, a special court issued the release memo for Aryan Khan, granted bail by the HC on Thursday after 25 days of arrest in the case related to alleged seizure of drugs on board a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast earlier this month, but his legal team could not meet the deadline for submission of papers on friday hence his release was delayed a by a day .
“We won’t give special treatment for anyone. The law is the same for all. The deadline for receiving the bail papers was 5.30 pm. That has passed. He won’t be released today,” senior jail official told PTI.
