Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, who is currently incarcerated at Arthur Road Prison in Mumbai following his alleged involvement in a drug case on a cruise ship, has read religious books in the prison.
According to the prison administration, Aryan Khan was anxious in prison after his bail was rejected. The prison authorities suggested that he read the books in the library.
As a result, Khan received books from the prison library. In the past two days, Aryan Khan has read a book written about Lord Ram and Mother Sita. Earlier, Khan had read a book called The Lion’s Gate.
According to the prison administration, if a prisoner wishes, he can obtain a book of his choice from his relatives, but only religious books are allowed. Apart from that, if a prisoner leaves a book when leaving the prison, it is also included in the library.
The Mumbai Special Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Court (NDPS) on Thursday extended the custody of Aryan Khan and others until October 30 in connection with the drug case on cruise ships .
Earlier Wednesday, the special court refused to grant bail to Aryan Khan and two other people in connection with the drug seizure. As a result, Aryan Khan filed a bail application in the Bombay High Court against the NDPS court order regarding his denial of bail.
The Bombay High Court will hear the bail application on October 26.
