He stayed at Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail for over 20 days before he was granted bail by the Bombay High Court. However, the probe agency did not name Aryan Khan as an accused in the charge sheet that it filed before the court, recently in May.

When Aryan Khan was granted bail by the Bombay High Court, he had to submit his passport before the court as a part of one of the conditions, based on which his bail was granted.
