The Bombay High Court granted relief to Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan's son Aryan Khan and now he no longer needs to appear before the Narcotics Control Bureau office in Mumbai on every Friday. 

This condition of weekly attendance was imposed on SRK’s son by the HC when he was granted bail in the cruise drugs case. 

A single bench of Justice N W Sambre stated that the condition has now been modified.

Justice Sambre said, 

"The applicant (Aryan) shall attend the office of NCB Delhi as and when directed by the agency, provided the NCB issues a 72-hour notice to the applicant,". 

The court also modified another condition laid down in the bail order that required him to furnish his itinerary to the NCB every time he travels out of Mumbai.

Justice Sambre further added,

"The applicant need not submit his itinerary if he is travelling to Delhi for recording his statement. He shall submit his itinerary to the NCB in case of any other travel outside Mumbai”.

Aryan Khan’s counsel while seeking the waiver of this condition, Amit Desai had argued, 

"The NCB's Mumbai office has now nothing to do with the case. My client (Aryan) has been cooperating with the probe and has, in fact, also appeared before the SIT probing the case and recorded his statement." 

He also stated that SRK’s son would appear before the NCB's SIT at Delhi as and when summons are issued to him. 

Aryan's application also mentioned that every time Aryan appears before the NCB's office in Mumbai, there is a huge crowd and that he has to be accompanied by police personnel, which causes unnecessary hassle.

Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB on October 3 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 on October 28 and Aryan walked out of jail on October 30.
