Shah Rukh Khan pays a visit to his son Aryan Khan in the Arthur Road jail after his bail was denied in a drug case.
Shah Rukh Khan has arrived at the Arthur Road prison, where his son Aryan Khan has been detained since October 8 in connection with the Mumbai cruise drugs case.
Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, physical meetings at the jail were prohibited. These limitations were lifted on Wednesday, and physical meetings in Maharashtra jails began on Thursday.
In the visitation section, Shah Rukh Khan met with Aryan for about 16 to 18 minutes. They were separated by a glass wall and communicated through the intercom. When Shah Rukh Khan spoke to his son, jail officials were present in the section.
After being arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3 in the Mumbai cruise narcotics raid case, Shah Rukh Khan's 23-year-old son Aryan Khan was denied bail once more on Wednesday.
The NCB has had Aryan Khan detained for more than two weeks. He has now applied for bail in the drugs case at the Bombay High Court.
Judge VV Patil denied Aryan Khan's bail application, stating that there is prima facie evidence against him. Despite the fact that Aryan Khan was not discovered in possession of drugs, Judge Patil stated that Aryan and Arbaaz Merchant are good friends. On October 2, they traveled together to the International Cruise Terminal, and in their voluntary statement, they said: Aryan mentioned the narcotics, implying that he was aware of the illegal activity.
Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha have been charged with violating the NDPS Act's Sections 8(c), 20(b), 27, 28, 29, and 35.
On Wednesday, all three defendants' bail requests were denied. They are being held in judicial custody at the moment. Munmun Dhamecha is held at the Byculla women's prison in Mumbai, while Aryan Khan and Arbaaz Merchant are held at the Arthur Road prison in Mumbai.
