Aryan Khan's lawyer told the Bombay High Court on Wednesday his arrest in the drugs-on-cruise case was a direct infringement of constitutional guarantees.

The Bombay High Court today allowed bail to Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha in the cruise ship drug bust case. Aryan Khan, arrested in the drugs case earlier this month, is in judicial custody for nearly three weeks now. Aryan Khan’s lawyer Mukul Rohtagi urged the court to grant cash bail to Khan.

Aryan Khan’s lawyer told the Bombay High Court on Wednesday his arrest in the drugs-on-cruise case was a direct infringement of constitutional guarantees and the counsel of a co-accused claimed conspiracy charge was invoked as an afterthought, while an NCB team began probe into allegations of extortion linked to the case against agency officials, including its zonal director in Mumbai Sameer Wankhede.
