Mumbai drugs case: ‘Aryan Khan has suffered enough, he’s not a peddler’; bail hearing adjourned till tomorrow
Aryan Khan was arrested on October 2 along with seven others after the NCB raided an alleged rave party on a cruise ship.
The Mumbai sessions court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of Shahrukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha bail applications and said it would continue hearing the ASG oppose the bail pleas in connection with the drugs-on-cruise case, tomorrow on October 14.
While arguing against granting bail to Aryan after reading the bail reply, the Additional Solicitor General (ASG) said, “I'll continue tomorrow. I request for 12pm.”
ASG cited that he has a fixed matter in High Court so the hearing in special court should be scheduled accordingly. To this, Advocate Amit Desai stated, “Please keep the hearing at 11 am.”
The judge stated, “I have 5-6 matters tomorrow. Will take this up after that.”
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) filed its reply in the court, and said that Aryan Khan and all other accused in the drugs-on-cruise case are connected and their roles cannot be separated.
Amit Desai, arguing for SRK's son Aryan Khan in the Mumbai drug bust case, said the first fact relevant for Aryan Khan is that no recovery was made from him. "When it comes to the secret information of use, sale and consumption, that was not Aryan Khan," he said. He added that Aryan Khan has suffered enough and he’s not a peddler.
Aryan Khan - Accused No. 1 for the NCB - sourced drugs and was in touch with "some persons abroad who appear to be a part of an International Drug Network for illicit procurement of drugs", the anti-drugs agency said in the statement. The probe so far has revealed his role in the conspiracy and illicit procurement and consumption of drugs, it added.
Aryan Khan was arrested on October 2 along with seven others after the NCB raided an alleged rave party on a cruise ship. A Mumbai court on Friday rejected Aryan’s bail plea after which he was sent to Arthur Jail.
So far 20 people have been arrested by the NCB in connection with the case, including Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Seth Merchantt, Munmun Dhamecha and others.
