The NCB had arrested him on October 3. Aryan Khan and two others – Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha – have filed a bail plea in the court of Special Judge VV Patil for Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) cases. Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh, appearing for the NCB, claimed that there is evidence to show that Aryan Khan was a regular consumer of narcotics for the past few years. Along with this, he reiterated the charge of his involvement in the conspiracy by quoting Khan’s WhatsApp chat.
Since Aryan’s arrest, NCB has been saying that nothing personally has been received from him. However, his relationship with drug traffickers has been revealed through WhatsApp chat. The ASG further said that the narcotics seized from the merchant on the cruise ship were for Aryan and the merchant. The NCB is also claiming that Aryan has links with members of an international drug gang.
Aryan kept in Arthur Road Jail
Significantly, earlier the magistrate’s court, while rejecting the bail applications, said that it cannot hear them as the matter is maintainable in the special court of NDPS. At present, Aryan and Merchant are kept in Arthur Road Jail while Dhamecha is kept in Byculla Women’s Prison.
