Aryan Khan shifted to common cell from quarantine barrack after Covid negative report

Aryan Khan

Mumbai: Amid the court hearing of Aryan Khan's bail plea, a new update has come that Shah Rukh Khan's son and others have been shifted to common cell. As per the new COVID-19 guidelines, Aryan and others were kept in quarantine cell of Arthur Road Jail. Today, they have been shifted to common cell, which also means, trouble for Khan as no more privacy facilities.

"Aryan Khan and five others shifted to the common cell from quarantine barrack in the jail after their Covid report came negative," Nitin Waychal, superintendent of Arthur Road Jail said.

Aryan Khan, 23, was sent to the Arthur Road Jail after being placed under judicial custody. A Mumbai court will hear his bail plea today - the third since his arrest almost two weeks ago.

The Narcotics Control Bureau or NCB has alleged that Aryan Khan - named Accused No. 1 - sourced drugs and was in touch with "some persons abroad who appear to be a part of an International Drug Network for illicit procurement of drugs".

The anti-drugs agency said that WhatsApp chats have revealed the accused was in touch with a foreign national for bulk quantity of hard drugs.

All those arrested "are inextricably connected with each other" and "it is not possible to dissect the role, involvement of one accused from that of the other", said the NCB. "The ingredients of conspiracy are clear and evident," said the agency, adding that "one of the applicants cannot be considered in isolation".

Aryan Khan's defence team has denied the allegation, saying that he was "not even on the cruise" raided by anti-drugs officers, had no cash to buy drugs, and didn't have drugs on him.

Amit Desai, representing Shah Rukh Khan's son, said the NCB's raid started when he had not even checked into the cruise and that he had neither used drugs nor was anything found on him.

"The allegation of illicit trafficking is inherently absurd. This boy who has nothing, he was not even on the vessel. It is an absurd and false allegation," he said.

Aryan Khan was arrested hours after the anti-drugs agency's officers raided a Mumbai cruise ship party in disguise on October 2. Seven others, including his friend Arbaaz Merchant (Accused no 2), were arrested on October 3.
