In a major development, former Attorney General of India Mukul Rohatgi will represent Aryan Khan in Mumbai cruise drug case before the Bombay High Court.


Aryan’s bail petition will be heard by the Bombay high court today. Apart from Rohtagi, Aryan is being represented by senior lawyers like Amit Desai and Satish Maneshinde.

“I will appear for Aryan Khan in his bail matter today in Bombay High Court,” said Rohatgi. According to a statement of Karanjawala & Company, Mukul Rohatgi along with his Karanjawala & Co team consisting of Senior Partners Ruby Singh Ahuja and Sandeep Kapur have flown to Bombay to join Aryan’s existing legal team.

Bombay High Court on October 21 said that it would hear Aryan Khan’s bail application on October 26, informed lawyer Satish Maneshinde. “We asked the court that the matter should be heard by video conferencing but the judge refused,” added Maneshinde. Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan on October 21 met his son Aryan Khan who is lodged at Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail.

Earlier on Wednesday, a special NDPS court rejected the bail plea of Aryan Khan, following which he approached the Bombay High Court.


Aryan and others were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa at mid-sea on October 2.
