TV actress Kamya Punjabi who is closely following Aryan Khan’s arrest in connection with a drugs case, on Wednesday said the decision to reject his bail is “harassment”.

Aryan, 23, was arrested on October 3 with seven others when the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) busted a drugs party onboard a cruise ship. He is currently in Arthur Road prison. A special court on Wednesday refused to grant bail to Aryan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, and two others in connection with the seizure of banned drugs.
Soon, Kamya tweeted, “What has happened to our Judiciary system?Aam janta trusts our judiciary system as they are a neutral body and hence not supposed to be biased.This is harassment n a one sided opinion.There are so many other ways to interrogate, like house arrest,etc. why keep in Jail? #AryanKhan.”
Aryan’s advocates then immediately filed an appeal in the HC, challenging the lower court’s order.
Since Aryan’s arrest, many Bollywood celebrities have come out in support of Shah Rukh on social media including Hrithik Roshan, Zoya Akhtar, Farah Khan, Hansal Mehta, Twinkle Khanna, Karan Patel, comedian Johnny Lever, actors Raveena Tandon, Pooja Bhatt, Vivek Vaswani, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Roshan’s former wife Sussanne Khan among others.
Shah Rukh’s close friend and superstar Salman Khan, who stays a few minutes away from his residence Mannat in suburban Bandra, has visited him quite a few times since the arrest of Aryan.
