Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan in his bail plea, which will be heard by the Bombay high court on October 26, has claimed that the Narcotics Control Bureau has misinterpreted his WhatsApp chat just to implicate him in the drug case.
Aryan Khan who got arrested by NCB in the case of seizure of banned drugs, on Wednesday moved the high court after a special court rejected his application for bail. The bail plea of the star-kid will be heard by the High Court on October 26.
In the bail plea, Aryan said the “interpretation and misinterpretation" done by the Narcotics Control Bureau of his WhatsApp chat is completely ‘wrong and unjustified’ and that the Bureau is just trying to implicate him.
The 23-year-old claimed no contraband was recovered from him after the NCB raided the ship and maintained he has no connection with any of the other accused in the case except Arbaaz Merchant and Aachit Kumar.
The appeal further said the WhatsApp chats that are being relied upon by the NCB are "ex-facie (on the face of it) of a period prior to the incident". "By no stretch of imagination can those purported messages be linked to any conspiracy for which the secret information was received," it said.
"The interpretation of the WhatsApp messages is that of the investigating officer and such interpretation is unjustified and wrong," the appeal said.
Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3 by the NCB along with his friend Arbaaz Merchant (26) and fashion model Munmun Dhamecha (28) during the bust raid on a goa-based cruise ship. The trio is currently lodged at the Arthur Road prison in central Mumbai.
