On Friday, Aryan Khan arrived at the office of the Narcotics Control Bureau in Mumbai to report his weekly presence, as per the mandate laid down in the bail conditions of the Bombay High Court. A previous week too, Aryan came to the NCB office, though he skipped the summons of the special investigation team of the central agency which is now investigating the case, mentioning ‘slight fever’.
The three accused of the case namely Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha have been granted bail under certain conditions. One of the conditions requires them to register their presence at the Mumbai office every week on Friday at a specified time. Furthermore, they are also demanded to cooperate with the agency in the ongoing probe which has now been moved to a Delhi team.
The previous week, the SIT summoned Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant and Achit Kumar for questioning. Reportedly, Arbaaz and Achit were interrogated for more than 9 hours. Nonetheless, Aryan Khan skipped the session on the grounds of health conditions.
The Bombay High Court in its order stated that Aryan Khan and his co-accused Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha who were released on bail will need to surrender their passport before the NDPS court and will not be allowed to leave India without taking permission from the special court. Moreover, they have to attend the NCB office each Friday between 11 am and 2 pm to report their presence.
According to reports, Shah Rukh’s manager Pooja Dadlani has also not joined the Mumbai police’s investigation so far. An SIT of the Mumbai Police is monitoring the extortion allegation charged against the NCB. As per the allegation, Pooja Dadlani is the key witness in the case as the demand for the money was made to her. Reportedly, she paid Rs50 Lakh for Aryan’s release when Aryan was arrested on October 2.
