Aryan Khan Bail Hearing Today; To Be Represented By Former AG
The Bombay High Court will hear the bail plea of SRK’s son Aryan Khan today, who have been locked up at the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai since 8th October in connection to the Mumbai drug bust case. The accused, Aryan Khan, has been denied bail 2 times. Today, Aryan Khan will be represented by former Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi. Last week, Aryan Khan was denied bail by a special court after the anti-drug agency submitted suspicious WhatsApp chats that were recovered from Aryan’s phone, hinting at his involvement in illicit drug activities. Meanwhile, NCB officials also conducted a raid at Aryan Khan and female actor Ananya Panday’s residence in Mumbai and also summoned Ananya Panday for questioning. During the raid conducted at the cruise ship by NCB officials, no drugs were found on Aryan Khan; however, 6 grams of charas were found hidden in Aryan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant’s shoe. Meanwhile, the case has taken a political route, with the Maharashtra government accusing the NCB of going after particular individuals on orders from the centre.
Mumbai Lawyer Seeks Investigation Against NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede
The Aryan Khan case has been hitting the headlines daily. As per the recent updates, a Mumbai lawyer has filed a written complaint to Mumbai police and the Maharashtra government, seeking an investigation against NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede and 4 others in connection with the Aryan Khan drug case. Advocate Sudha Dwivedi’s complaint read: “It is very apparent that now, based on the affidavit that, the entire investigation would be nothing but a sham and flimsy investigation which is done apparently to bring down the image of the state government, Bollywood Film industry, and the anti-narcotics cell of the state government who has been working tirelessly by seizing heroin and not heroines,” Meanwhile, Prabhakar Sail who claims that he is the bodyguard of an NCB witness Kiran Gosavi, said that Gosavi took Rs 50 lakh from an individual after the cruise ship raid.

PM Modi Launches PM Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission Worth Rs 64,000 Crore
On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the PM Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission, giving a major push to the healthcare capacities in the country. The scheme, touted as the country’s largest pan India health infrastructure, will ensure public health systems in both rural and urban areas so that all states are capable enough to respond effectively during any public health emergency in future and also combat outbreaks like covid-19. While addressing a gathering after launching the mission with an outlay of Rs 64,000, PM Modi said: “Projects like PMABHIM, which are being rolled out as India’s major step towards holistic healthcare while keeping health and wellness a priority, should have been done after independence. But, the previous governments kept the people deprived of facilities by not developing the health infrastructure,” “Most of the areas had no hospitals. If hospitals existed, they lacked the facilities for accurate diagnostic tests, surgery and critical care. This led to crowding at big hospitals at major centres,” added PM Modi.
The Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission addresses one of the major shortcomings of our health sector- the inability to fully cater to rural areas and the poor as well as middle class. pic.twitter.com/szIuR2M8p9

On Monday, US President Joe Biden signed an order, lifting severe travel restrictions on India, China and much of Europe. The US travel restrictions came into effect in early 2020 to curb the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic. The travel rules barred anyone from entering the USA who have visited the United Kingdom, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Brazil, Iran, European countries without border controls in the last 14 days. However, US President Joe Biden has now imposed new vaccine requirements for foreign national air travellers that will come in effect from 8th November 2021.

Bigg Boss 15: Is Wild Cart Entrant Rajiv Adatia Creating A Rift Between Ieshaan And Miesha?
The new wild card contestant Rajiv Adatia seems to have come with a lot of planning. With not wasting any time, Rajiv Adatia spoke to Ieshaan Sehgal about Miesha Iyer and said: “I am sorry. I won’t listen that you are in love. I have known you for a long time now. In three days, you can’t fall in love with anyone. I don’t expect this from you, Ieshaan. Pyaar pyaar tu kar raha hai hamesha, tu bewakoof lag raha hai bahar. Tera image jo portray karna tha ghar mein, woh bilkul ulta ho gaya hai.” However, it may look like a concern, but everyone is anticipating that Rajiv is trying to create a rift between Ieshaan and Miesha. Meanwhile, Rajiv also spoke to his Rakhi sister and fellow contestant Shamita Shetty, telling her not to trust Vishal Kotian as he is only using her to move ahead in the game. After Rajiv’s entry, the equations are likely to change in the Bigg Boss 15 house.
