Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan walked out of Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail on Saturday morning, after he was granted bail by Bombay High Court on October 28 in the cruise ship drug case.
Khan had been granted bail by Bombay High Court on Thursday evening but the bail conditions were pronounced by single-judge Justice Nitin Sambre only on Friday evening.
The conditions included personal bond of ₹1 lakh and one surety of the like amount. Bollywood actor Juhi Chawla stood as surety for Khan.
The Sessions court had cleared the surety and other formalities on Friday but the bail papers could not be submitted before the jail authorities before the 5.30 pm deadline thus delaying Khan’s release by another day.
Khan was taken into custody by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 2, 2021 after a cruise ship en route to Goa from Mumbai was raided.
He was remanded to NCB custody till October 4, which was extended till October 7. Subsequently, he was remanded to judicial custody, after which he immediately moved for bail.
