On Thursday, 23-year-old Aryan Khan was granted bail by the Bombay High Court in the drug case after three days of the hearing, but he had to spend one more night in jail.
This happened due to the non-availability of bail documents on time. These documents were given to the jail administration at 5:30 am on Saturday, after which Aryan Khan was released.
NCB did not get the drug from Aryan Khan but has claimed in the court that his WhatsApp chat shows that he was involved in illegal drug smuggling. Arbaaz Merchant and model Munmun Dhamicha, who was arrested along with Aryan Khan in the drug case, have also got bail.
Aryan Khan came out of jail at around 11 am after spending 28 days. Soon after getting out of jail, he rammed into a waiting white Range Rover SUV and was taken to his home Mannat in suburban Bandra, 12 km away. A day before, the vow was decorated with lights. The photos show the upper floor of the house covered with twinkling fairy lights.
