We all know about the hit-and-run case of Salman Khan back in 2002. But only a few know about who came to his rescue and got him acquitted. It was Amit Desai, the senior advocate who is representing Aryan Khan on his drugs case.
Amit Desai had defended Salman Khan in 2015 when the lower court had sentenced Salman to a total of five years imprisonment for the same. Salman was granted bail finally in May 2015 with a fine of Rs. 30,000.
He said, “the investigating agency was trying to trap him on account of drunk driving”. On December 10, 2015, Salman bailed off all the charges against him.
On Monday, October 11, 2021, the senior advocate also defended Aryan Khan, where his bail plea was deferred by the sessions court to October 13, Wednesday. The 23-year-old was taken by the NCB officials and arrested on October 3 on account of a drugs party on a cruise to Goa on October 2.
Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) special prosecutor, Advait Sethna had requested to be granted some time to reply to all his bail pleas. VV Patil, the special NDPS court’s special judge has lined the bail pleas hearing of Arbaaz Merchant, Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Satija, and Mohak Jaswal also for Wednesday, October 13.
Speaking about Aryan’s case, Amit Desai said, “we are completely relying on the court. Justice shall prevail. There were no drugs found with Aryan Khan. NCB is trying to defend his bail pleas. So we may hear the plea tomorrow. My liberty is at stake now”.
On the other hand, Shah Rukh and Gauri have been rained with support from the industry. From Hrithik Roshan to Farah Khan, all have been seen standing in unity with the two. Recently, Salman Khan was seen visiting Shah Rukh at his residence, Mannat. Apart from this, fans have also been seen standing outside his house to show their support for the superstar.
The star kid has been sent to 14-day judicial custody at Arthur Road jail since October 8. A recent photograph, that went viral on social media, claims that Gauri Khan was seen crying inconsolably after her son was sent to the Arthur Road jail. Though the photo is not confirmed to be of Gauri’s, people have claimed it to be hers only.
Now the big question is, will Amit Desai get Aryan Khan’s bail plea approved just like he did in defending Salman Khan back in 2015? Stay tuned for the update tomorrow!
