NCB raids Shah Rukh Khan's Mannat, Ananya Panday's residence
Right after Aryan Khan's arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), when media portals had asked the agency if his father Shah Rukh Khan's house would be raided, they had said a clear no. But after Aryan's WhatsApp chats with an "upcoming actress" were produced as evidence by NCB yesterday, the sleuths conducted raids at Khan's house, Mannat, and also Ananya Panday's residence.

NCB has also summoned Panday for an interrogation today
However, Sameer Wankhede, Zonal director of the agency reportedly clarified that the agency did not raid Mannat but was simply there to pick up some documents in connection to Aryan's legal case. Apart from this, the NCB has also summoned Panday for an interrogation today.

This comes a day after court rejected Aryan's bail plea
This comes a day after a Special NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Court rejected the bail plea of Aryan. In response, the star kid moved the Bombay High Court today, which has kept his bail plea hearing for October 26. Earlier today, King Khan also met with his son, who is lodged at the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, for some minutes.
SRK met Aryan in jail today, for the first time
This is the first time the Zero actor visited his son in prison. Donning a grey casual tee and a black face mask, the star was seen entering the jail in the morning today. Earlier the 23-year-old talked to his parents over a video call, in which he reportedly broke down while narrating the condition of the cell he was in.
'There is no possession, no evidence at all,' argued Maneshinde
Just after this meeting, the Bombay High Court hearing was held, where Aryan's lawyer Satish Maneshinde repeated, "This is a matter where there is no possession, no evidence at all." He then requested for a hearing "tomorrow or on Monday." Notably, Aryan's co-accused/fashion model Munmun Dhamecha's bail hearing was mentioned as well in the hearing today. That matter has been kept for October 26.
SRK still silent, Bollywood stands by him nonetheless
It needs to be noted that there has been no official statement or any comment from Khan's side whatsoever. In fact, he is silent on social media as well. Meanwhile, almost the entire film fraternity has lent their support to the megastar. After the court rejected Aryan's bail yesterday, several commented how this was "unfair," and that they were "shocked" and "angry."
