He was sent to 14-days judicial custody on October 7 and has been lodged at the Arthur Road jail since October 8.
After the Narcotics Control Bureau strongly opposed Aryan’s bail plea, Aryan’s lawyer argued that no contraband was found on Aryan and that he will not tamper with evidence.
It has already been 17 days since Aryan, the son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, was detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with a drug bust on a cruise liner off the Mumbai coast.
After his plea was rejected last week, the 23-year-old was sent to Mumbai's Arthur Road Central Jail.
He spent Dussehra in jail and reportedly had an emotional video conversation with his parents over the past weekend.
All the undertrials in the Arthur Road jail are allowed to speak to their family via video call once or twice a week, keeping Covid protocols in mind.
He was arrested by the NCB on October 3 during a raid conducted on the cruise ship off Mumbai coast on its way to Goa.
The Bollywood actor's son was sent to judicial custody by a magistrate court in Mumbai when the court denied his bail plea.
Earlier on Tuesday, an official told ET that the central agency in its possession has a series of group and individual chats of Khan which are “incriminating in nature”.
However, some of these chats may not be connected to the seizure made on the cruise ship, he said,
“There are chats where he has acknowledged what he has received, also chats discussing abused substances. Post his disclosure, there have been fresh arrests and raids. So, the chats became the starting point of the probe, helping us string the conspiracy".
