The Bombay high court on Tuesday adjourned hearing on the bail application of superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan till Wednesday. The matter will be taken up for the hearing again in the Bombay High Court post-lunch at 2.30 pm, Justice Nitin Sambre said.

The star-son, in jail since the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) conducted a raid on a Goa-bound cruise off Mumbai’s coast on October 2, will remain behind the bars for another day.

Earlier, after hearing the arguments of former attorney general Mukul Rohatgi on behalf of Aryan and advocate Amit Desai arguing for Arbaaz Merchant, another accused in the case, Justice Sambre said everybody is given circulation and heard in his court.

“I finish the board and take such matters, everybody is given circulation and heard in my court,” he said.

The court would continue the hearing on the bail pleas of Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha on Wednesday, besides the arguments of Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, appearing for the NCB.
