Aryan, who along with Arbaaz Merchantt, Munmun Dhamecha and others have been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in an alleged drugs case, has been in Arthur Road Jail since 8 October.

On Wednesday, 20 October, a special Mumbai court rejected the bail pleas of Aryan, Arbaaz and Munmun. The same day, Aryan filed an application in the High Court against the order.


While passing the verdict on Wednesday the court had observed that WhatsApp chats prima facie reveal that Aryan Khan is allegedly involved in ‘illicit drug activities on a regular basis'. The ASG, representing the NCB, had argued that the WhatsApp chats reflected Aryan’s involvement in illicit activities for narcotic substances despite there being no criminal antecedent.
