(MENAFN- NewsBytes) Will Bombay High Court finally grant some relief to Shah Rukh Khan 's son Aryan today?

The hearing is set to begin around 10:30 am on October 26. Before that, here are the updates.
Recent A witness brought serious extortion allegation against NCB officer Sunday
The last few days have seen a lot of turns emerge in the Cordelia Cruises drug case. An independent witness of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB ) named Prabhakar Sail leveled extortion allegations against individuals, including NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede . The allegations are being looked into. Sail is KP Gosavi 's bodyguard (a private detective and NCB witness, who clicked the viral selfie with Aryan).
Allegations Nawab Malik released letter that claims Wankhede regularly extorted money
On the flip side, Wankhede was again attacked by Nationalist Congress Party leader Nawab Malik . The Maharashtra minister alleged Wankhede was a Muslim named "Sameer Dawood Wankhede" and a forger. Today, he revealed the contents of a letter apparently sent by an NCB officer , which said Wankhede purposely targets Bollywood stars. An "attention seeker," Wankhede has extorted money several times in the past.
Twitter Post Malik said he'll be forwarding letter to NCB Director General Bail hearing Mukul Rohatgi to appear for Aryan in court
Now coming to the hearing, Aryan will be represented at the court today by Former Attorney General for India Mukul Rohatgi, reported India Today . A single bench of Justice NW Sambre will be hearing the bail plea. Rejecting Aryan's bail application, the NDPS court noted on October 20 that the 23-year-old's chats showed he was "dealing in illicit drug activities on a regular basis."
