The Bombay High Court has issued a detailed copy of the bail order granted to Aryan Khan in the Mumbai cruise drug case. In this, the High Court has said that no substance was found with Aryan Khan. Also, there is no evidence of any conspiracy against Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha.
Aryan Khan was arrested on this day.
The Narcotics Control Bureau arrested Aryan Khan on October 2. He was accused of attending the drug party of Cruise travelling from Mumbai to Goa. Aryan was taken into custody. Along with him, 20 more people, including Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, were arrested. Aryan Khan had to spend three weeks in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai after getting judicial custody in this case. On October 28, Aryan got bail from the High Court.
This was in the order of the High Court.
Now the Bombay High Court has issued an order for Aryan Khan’s bail. It has all the details related to the case. According to this order of the High Court, the WhatsApp chat found in Aryan Khan phone does not indicate a connection of ‘conspiracy of the three accused with other co-accused.
As per the order, the applicant/accused no. Nothing incriminating has been found in the WhatsApp chat of phone 1 (Aryan Khan) to indicate that applicants 2 and 3 (Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha) were conspiring to commit this offence.
There is hardly any positive evidence in this case that suggests that the three together wanted to commit this crime. Not only this, but the court also said in the order that the medical checkup of all three was not done. Which would show that he had taken drugs at the same time.
The NCB had argued in the court that the accused had confessed that they had consumed drugs. Clarifying this point, the High Court wrote in the order that NCB’s counsel had submitted documents in this case. In such a situation, it becomes necessary to state that the statements containing such confessions help the investigating agency in the investigation. Still, by this, you cannot show that the applicants have committed an offence under the NDPS Act.
In the order of the court, it has been said that the applicant was travelling by Cruise, only based on the fact that section 29 cannot be imposed on him. Finally, the court order states that it is difficult to say whether the applicants are accused of possessing drugs. The parameters prescribed under Section 37 of the NDPS Act will hardly bear the applications for grant of bail to the applicants.
