Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Aryan Khan, son of superstar Shah Rukh Khan, spoke about the Aryan Khan drug case for the first time while speaking to the media. He said that there was no evidence against Aryan Khan and the case against him was pushed too far by the NCB. There was no solid evidence in the matter. NCB was just trying to drag the matter. He also said that agencies try to keep people in jail after they are arrested. The former Attorney General of India said that sensitizing law enforcement agencies will go a long way in decongesting prisons.
Forced attempt to drag the case
Speaking on the Bombay High Court’s decision to grant bail to Aryan Khan, Rohatgi pointed out that there were two important aspects of the case. First there was no recovery from Aryan Khan and best of all, he was linked to Arbaaz Merchant. There was no evidence of consuming, pedaling or carrying large amounts. Nevertheless, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) tried to make it a matter of commercial volume. So the matter dragged on. He said the law specifically makes a distinction and if someone is a consumer of small quantities, he is treated differently. “Law enforcement agencies fail to make this distinction. They try to convert into commercial quantities.
