Bombay HC grants modification in application filed by Aryan Khan: 'Need not appear before NCB every Friday'
Aryan Khan, son of Shahrukh Khan, was in the news after he was arrested in the cruise ship drug bust case.
Reportedly, a single-judge bench of Justice Nitin W Sambre said that Aryan Khan will have to appear before the Special Investigation Team of the NCB in Delhi as and when summoned, provided 72-hour notice is given by the Central Agency. The court also said that the applicant will have to inform the investigating officer and provide an itinerary before going out of Mumbai. The special prosecutor, who appeared for NCB, stated that since the investigation has now been taken over by SIT Delhi, the condition can be modified to the extent that as and when Khan is called, he should be present.
