Aryan Khan, the son of Indian movie star Shah Rukh Khan, received a “clean chit” in the Mumbai Drugs case in May of this year after months of inquiry. In a raid on a party aboard an opulent cruise off the coast of Mumbai last October 3, NCB detained Aryan.
Khan filed a petition on Thursday in the NDPS court asking for the return of his passport, which had been given to the court by the Bombay High Court when it granted him bail in the high-profile case last year.
Aryan, 24, has requested the cancellation of his bail bond as well as a formal order releasing him from the narcotics case now that the agency has cleared him of all charges of misconduct.
Following the plea, the court set the hearing date for the case to be on July 13 and requested that NCB submit a response to the same.
The anti-drugs agency issued a charge sheet against 14 people in May after seven months of inquiry after Aryan was arrested and then released on bond, but the star child’s name was omitted.
Six others, except Aryan, received clearance because there was insufficient proof. The NCB official stated, “Complaint against the remaining six persons is not being filed owing to lack of solid evidence.”
The NCB DG SN Pradhan stated, “Those against whom proof was not found were not chargesheeted.”
Aryan was detained under Sections 8A, 22(b), 27, and 35 of the NDPS Act of 1985.
