Aryan Khan may not get relief, even as Mukul Rohatgi joins his team

Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan, who is in custody for more than three weeks for his involement in the Mumbai cruise drugs bust case, may not get relief from the Bombay High Court on Thursday as his bail plea listed at No. 57 may not come up for hearing.
Former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi is expected to appear for Aryan Khan. Rohatgi, who recently slammed the Narcotics Control Bureau terming it as “an Ostrich with head buried in the sand”, will join Khan’s existing battery of lawyers in the high court on Tuesday.
As per legal sources, Aryan’s bail plea has been listed at serial number 57 and the bail plea of co-accused Arbaaz Merchant at 64 of the court. The functioning of the court indicates that the pleas could reach for hearing post lunch or late evening if other hearings move fast.
The sources also indicates that even if Aryan’s bail hearing comes up post lunch, Justice VM Sambhare, who is hearing the matter will have to hear both sides and also hear the bail plea of other accused and then only pass an order.
