Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, moved the Bombay High Court today, seeking a modification of a condition imposed on him when he got bail in the drugs-on-cruise case. Aryan’s application sought waiver of the condition that he shall appear before the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) south Mumbai office every Friday to mark his presence.
Since the investigation has gone 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 said that Aryan Khan had to be accompanied by police personnel every time he visited the NCB office in Mumbai due to the large number of mediapersons 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 3 October on charges of alleged possession, consumption and sale/purchase of drugs following a raid on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. He was granted bail by the high court on 28 October.
