NCB gets 60 more days to file charge sheet in drugs case involving Aryan Khan

Mumbai: A special court here on Thursday granted 60 days extension to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) to file a charge sheet in the drugs-on-cruise case, in which Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, is an accused.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Khan, submitted that 87 FIRs have been filed against the leader and he has got bail in 84 cases. I am inside prison for nothing. Where do I go my lord? I am not bringing any politics into it," he said. Sibal said the bail plea was not being taken up for last 3-4 months despite repeated request for hearing.

USA: COVID-19 cases hit six-month higher at over 100,000

Washington: The United States hit a six-month high for new COVID cases with over 100,000 infections reported on Wednesday, according to a Reuters tally, as the Delta variant ravages areas where people did not get vaccinated.

"If another one comes along that has an equally high capability of transmitting but also is much more se...
