A special Mumbai court today rejected the bail application filed by Aryan Khan, the 23-year-old son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the drugs-on-cruise case.

Aryan Khan was arrested hours after Narcotics Control Bureau officers raided a Mumbai cruise ship party in disguise on October 2. Seven others, including his friend Arbaaz Merchant, were arrested on October 3.

He has been in Mumbai's Arthur Road jail since October 8 and was briefly in the custody of the NCB before that.

The anti-drugs agency has claimed in court that Aryan Khan is a regular consumer of drugs, adding that "this is the land of Mahatma Gandhi... this (drug) abuse is affecting young boys".

Aryan Khan was dealing in drug activities on regular basis: Court
The special NDPS Act court in its 21-page order noted that WhatsApp chats of Aryan Khan prima facie revealed that he was "dealing in illicit drug activities on a regular basis" and therefore it cannot be said that he was not likely to commit a similar offence if released on bail.

It also held that Aryan knew that his friend and co-accused Arbaaz Merchant was in possession of drugs, and hence there was "conscious possession" even though the NCB had not found any drugs on Aryan himself.

"Considering the prima facie involvement of the applicants/accused No 1 to 3 (Aryan Khan, Merchant and Dhamecha) in commission of grave and serious offence, this is not a fit case for granting bail," the judge said in the order.

Aide Of Man Who Took Viral Selfie With Aryan Khan Arrested In Fraud Case
Veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar today said the Hindi film industry is under the scanner because of its "high profile" nature and it is the "price" it has to pay.

The veteran writer's statement comes at a time when there is a renewed attention on Bollywood and its celebrity culture after actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan was arrested in connection with a case of alleged seizure of drugs from a cruise ship.

When asked if he feels that Bollywood is being routinely targeted with raids, Mr Akhtar said, "This is the price the film industry has to pay for being high profile. When you're high profile, people have fun pulling you down, throwing muck at you. If you're a nobody, then who has the time to throw stones at you?"

Mr Akhtar was speaking at the launch of the book "Changemakers", written by authors Almas Virani and Sweta Samota.

Aryan Khan Bail Plea Order In Drugs-On-Cruise Case Today
Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa on Tuesday called the killing of a labourer at the Singhu border a possible conspiracy to defame the farmers' agitation, citing a purported photograph of Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar with a Nihang "leader".

Former state Congress chief Sunil Jakhar also joined the controversy triggered by the appearance of the photograph on social media, alleging that Central agencies could be involved in last week's murder at a farmers' protest site near the Delhi-Haryana border.

The group photo includes Mr Tomar and a man in blue robes of the Sikh order of the Nihangs. The Union minister has in the past met farmer protest leaders to negotiate a solution to the deadlock over agri-marketing laws.
