Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, has approached the Bombay High Court urging it to change the condition of a weekly visit to the anti-drugs agency’s office as part of a bail condition in the drugs-on-cruise case.
Aryan Khan’s application sought waiver of the condition that he shall appear before the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) south Mumbai office every Friday.
As the investigation has been now transferred to a Special Investigation Team of Delhi NCB, the condition that he appear at the Mumbai office could be relaxed, said the plea.
The application also said that he has to be accompanied by police personnel every time he visits the NCB office here due to the large number of media outlets waiting outside.
The application is likely to be heard by the High Court next week, his lawyers said.
Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB on October 3 on charges of possession, consumption, sale and purchase of drugs following a raid on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast.
He was granted bail by the high court on October 28 which later in a detailed order poked holes in most of the allegations and arguments made by the NCB.
The high court also imposed 14 conditions on him. He was asked, among other things, to appear before the NCB each Friday, not to leave Mumbai without informing the agency and not to leave India without permission from the special court.
