Today is the fifth day of Aryan Khan, son of actor Shahrukh Khan, who lives in a palace like house, in Arthur Road Jail. He was brought here on the afternoon of 8 October. Now a surprising information is coming out about the condition of Aryan who is in jail. According to jail sources, Aryan has not eaten properly after coming to jail. He is alive on biscuits (Parle G) bought from the canteen for the last 4 days.
Jail officials and staff are constantly explaining to them, but they are not eating anything, saying that they are not hungry. It has also come to the notice that this morning Baba (Constable) of Amad ward had brought some Parle Ji biscuits to Aryan. Aryan has only 3 bottles of water left. He had bought a dozen bottles of water before entering the jail.
According to the jail manual, a prisoner can take only Rs 2500 inside with him. This money gets deposited in the jail account and in return the prisoner is given a coupon over the course of a month. Using these coupons, he can buy food items, soap, oil and toothpaste from the jail canteen. Namkeen, biscuits and chips are also available in the prison canteen.
According to jail sources, Aryan’s stomach has also not been cleared for three to four days. The jail authorities are worried that his health may deteriorate due to his not going to the toilet. The jail workers and Baba of Aad Ward have tried to convince them, but Aryan is not agreeing.
Arbaaz is also kept in the same cell with Aryan. Only two sheets and some clothes have come from Aryan’s house. A blanket has been given to him by the jail. It has also come to the notice that Aryan has not taken a bath for 4 days. However, according to the jail rules, he has to get daily shaving done.
According to sources, he is currently kept in quarantine in the cell below the child ward. There are three undertrial prisoners, including two elderly, one disabled, in the cell with him. Sanjay Dutt also stayed in this cell for a few days. After Aryan’s quarantine period is over, he will be taken out of here and sent to the normal ward. There is a provision for staying 500 people in that ward simultaneously.
There is a canteen right next to the ward where Aryan is staying. So they do not face any problem in buying things, but if their bail plea is rejected on Wednesday, then trouble may increase for them. They can use only two and a half thousand rupees by money order by getting them in jail next month.
According to jail sources, the ward’s accountable and two sentries have been deployed to keep an eye on Aryan. They do not talk much to anyone throughout the day, only when someone asks them a question, they answer it. Aryan’s respondent is a 21-year-old accused of Chembur bank robbery. Usually, each cell has an accountant, whose job is to keep an eye on and control other prisoners.
The child ward is adjacent to the wall of the egg cell in the jail. Aryan’s window opens only towards the egg cell. Many famous criminals are locked in the egg cell. No one is being allowed to leave without work on the floor where Aryan is kept. Till now no one has come to meet Aryan officially. Two days ago, after the end of the meeting, a person came to meet him, although he was not allowed to meet him citing the rule. However, his name could not be disclosed.
