However, Aryan Khan’s lawyer continued to defend him and claimed that Shah Rukh Khan’s son was not present during the raids. Aryan Khan, through his lawyer, also highlighted ‘They say they are in contact with MEA and everything. Well, go ahead and carry on. But this accusation is inherently absurd and false.

The matter was heard by a special judge under the Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS Act), VV Patil. Aryan Khan’s attorney is Lead Counsel Amit Desai, while Additional Attorney General Anil Singh initiated the arguments on behalf of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
