Aryan Khan has been denied bail for a second time, 18 days after he was arrested at a party on board a cruise ship.
Khan, the 23-year-old son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, was held on October 2nd and charged by India’s Narcotics Control Bureau under laws “related to possession, consumption and sale of illegal substances”.
He denies the allegations, with his lawyer arguing that no drugs were found in his possession and that there was “no evidence that he had consumed any drugs”.
According to BBC News a court in Mumbai today rejected his bail, as well as the bail pleas of two others accused in the case.
It had earlier rejected bail on October 8th.
His lawyers are expected to appeal the decision in the Mumbai High Court.
