    fardeen khan surely must have felt relieved after judge P.N.Deshmukh of a special sessions court said that the actor would be facing charges only for attempting to buy 1 gm of cocaine, which comes under the category of 'small quantity'. So, even if he is found guilty he stands to spend only a maximum of six months in jail.

    The case dates back to the year 2001 when the actor was caught with 9gms of cocaine in Mumbai's suburb Juhu. Fardeen was then booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act and sent to custody. He however, was granted bail later and the case has been awaiting trial in the sessions court ever since.

    In the recent chain of events, it appears that the actor has appealed that he was merely attempting to buy 1 gm of cocaine and hence be discharged from criminal prosecution. His plea for complete discharge has been rejected and the actor will still have to stand trial for whatever 'small' charge on the next session scheduled for Feb 8. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) doesn't seem too pleased with this concession given to the actor and said that it will appeal against the sessions court order in the High Court.
