Senior lawyer Hitesh Jain Unfortunate that Aryan Khan has not been granted bail, similar offences in the past have got bail

The Mumbai Sessions Court has rejected Aryan Khan’s bail plea and the decision has taken a lot of people by surprise. ETimes reached out to senior lawyer Hitesh Jain, who like many others has found this development unfortunate. Jain said, “It is unfortunate that Aryan Khan’s bail plea has been rejected. The offences registered against him are those concerning consumption and that too of small quantities. There have been instances in the past where bail has been granted in matters related to similar offences. Although the NDPS Act states that all offences are non-bailable, offences concerning consumption of small quantities are only punishable for a maximum period of one year. Therefore, the Learned Sessions Judge ought to have respected the Legislative mandate of not imprisoning such persons.”
