Drug case: Aryan Khan's bail plea hearing today, Mukul Rohatgi to represent SRK's son
Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan's bail plea in the narcotics case will be heard by the Bombay High Court Tuesday, media reports said.
Aryan, who was detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Oct 3, is in jail since eighth of the same month.
He was denied bail twice earlier.
Former Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi, will represent Shah Rukh's 23-year-old son in the court Tuesday.
The hearing will be held in the backdrop of a serious charge levelled against NCB officer Sameer Wankhede, who is leading the probe into the drug case.
Wankhede has been hit with an allegation of Rs. eight crore payoff by a witness in the case, named Prabhakar Sail.
However, the NCB stated Wankhede has an "impeccable service record", backing the officer.
The drug case has created ripples in Bollywood, which is considerably the most celebrated film industry in the country, as young actress Ananya Panday was summoned thrice by the NCB after her name flashed in the drug-related WhatsApp chats with Aryan.
