Lost in translation? Aryan Khan chats say he was headed to cruise for a blast, says NCB; Gen-Z lingo misunderstood, says Khan

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, who was recently arrested in case of alleged seizure of drugs from a cruise ship in Mumbai has said that his chats in Gen-Z lingo have been misunderstood by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

Recently, in the bail hearing of the 23-year-old, some interesting arguments took place. Aryan Khan’s counsel said that the language that is used by the young generation on social media platforms is different from normal language and it has been misinterpreted by NCB.

In the panchnama of the chats during the hearing that took place yesterday, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh said that the panchnama records state that Aryan and Arbaaz Merchant were headed to the cruise to have a blast.

In the chats, it was mentioned that Arbaaz Merchant admits that he consume charas with Aryan Khan and they are going inside the Cordelia cruise for the blast.

However, in response to the panchnama of the chats, Senior Advocate Amit Desai said that today’s generation’s WhatsApp lingo cannot be the basis for culpability or in any case denial of bail as it could mean something totally different.

He said that the young generation has a different way of expressing themselves, which may seem like torture to us older generation. The language that is used by them can be something different than what ought to be in the court of law. And those conversations may lead to suspicion, as it should.

He further said that these chats are a private moment but have nothing to do with illicit behaviour, Illicit drug trafficking. Context is important when we deal with evidentiary value. The chats are all youthful banter. Some chit chat is happening.

Meanwhile, the verdict of the bail plea is likely to be pronounced on October 15. Aryan has now been shifted to Arthur Road prison in central Mumbai. Today, he received Rs 4,500 through a money order sent by his father Shah Rukh Khan.
