A lot of big names like Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Farah Khan, Raveena Tandon and more have come forward to support Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri Khan and their family in the on-going drugs case. While SRK’s fans have also launched a vigil to support Aryan, a lot of legal counsels have been vocal about the case, too. ETimes reached out to late Sushant Singh Rajput’s family lawyer Vikas Singh, who had represented the case in court last year when Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and others were also involved. The senior lawyer supported the young star kid and pointed out to loopholes in the investigation.
Advocate Singh explained, “This entire law (NDPS – Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act) is possession based and quantity of possession becomes the sentence. If there is no possession, the question of a case does not arise unless you are a peddler or a supplier, which is the fourth category. Aryan was neither found with possession nor was he a supplier. He is at best a consumer. And calling him consumer is also debatable, because till now there is nothing found in his hair follicle. I don’t think they have even tested that. What is happening to him is unfair.”
At the time of publishing this article, the Mumbai Court was hearing a plea for bail for Aryan Khan and other accused. While the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has raised questions on whether a bail plea is applicable, Aryan’s and Arbaaz Merchant’s counsels have argued that the offences under which their clients have been booked as bailable. An order from the Court is expected in the early evening of the day.
