Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan moves court to get back his passport
Aryan had submitted his passport in the court as per his bail conditions
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan, who got a clean chit from the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in last year’s drugs-on-cruise case, on Thursday moved a plea before a special NDPS court, seeking return of his passport.
The court directed the NCB to file a reply and posted the matter for hearing on July 13. Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB in early October last year in the high-profile drugs case, but the probe agency didn’t name him as an accused in a chargesheet filed in May.
The NCB let off Aryan and five others due to “lack of sufficient evidence”. He had submitted his passport in the court as per his bail conditions.
On Thursday, he moved an application in the special court, through his lawyers Amit Desai and Rahul Agarwal of Desai Desai Carrimjee and Mulla, seeking the return of his passport, citing the chargesheet that does not name him.
The 24-year-old was arrested by the NCB on October 3 last year, following a raid on a Goa-bound cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. Aryan Khan spent over 20 days in prison before he was granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
