'Gauri Khan is within her rights to wonder why her son is being locked up with hardened criminals.
Aryan Khan, who is currently lodged in Mumbai's Arthur Road jail, has not been allowed to meet any of his family members since his since his arrest on October 2.
A very close friend of the Khans tells Subhash K Jha, "Shah Rukh and Gauri have been desperately trying for visiting rights. Achcha chalo, visiting rights nahin toh kam se kam ek baar apne bete se milne toh do (If visiting rights are not granted, they can at least be allowed to meet their son once). But they are being denied even that."
Apparently the parents -- especially Aryan's mother Gauri -- are becoming increasingly anxious.
"She is inconsolable.
"She is within her rights to wonder why her son is being locked up with hardened criminals. Why is he not allowed basic rights like meeting his parents?
"He is just a child. He can't be treated this way.
"He has no criminal record. He is well-behaved and polite to everyone. What is he being held for?" the distressed friend wonders.
Their hopes seeing their son home are now pinned on the bail plea on Wednesday.
