Satish Manshinde arrives at Shah Rukh Khan’s house
Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan is being represented by senior advocate Satish Manshinde. The lawyer on Monday arrived at superstar’s house.
Mumbai court extended Aryan Khan custody only till October 7. Opposing extension of custody sought by the NCB, Aryan Khan’s advocate Satish Maneshinde argued that his client had no criminal antecedents. Aryan Khan had shown good conduct by not running away from NCB officers when the raid was being conducted and allowed them to search him, the advocate argued.
Maneshinde claimed no drugs were recovered from Aryan’s possession.
Aryan Khan brought to NCB office from court, where will remain till October 7. The agency busted an alleged drugs party on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa at mid-sea on Saturday night.
The Narcotics Control Bureau on Monday arrested Shreyas Nair, who has alleged links with Aryan Khan, from Goregaon in a drugs case. Earlier today, Aryan Khan and seven others were sent to a three-day NCB custody by a Mumbai court in connection with a drugs seizure on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast.
