Aryan Khan Drugs Case Hearing Today
During the hearing, the Narcotics Control Bureau asked the court to give one week. The court has given NCB time till Wednesday, i.e. till today. In the case, Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede says that we and the prosecution will try that the case reaches its logical conclusion, our case is strong, and we will present it in the court.
The cruise was arrested on October 3
Special Judge VV Patil heard a matter related to the NDPS Act. Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3 by NCB after raiding the Cordelia Cruise going to Goa. He is currently lodged in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai.
He had moved the magistrate’s court last week for bail. The court said it had no right to consider the bail application because the special court would hear the matter. After this, Aryan had moved to the special court. Aryan Khan’s lawyer Amit Desai referred to the bail plea, while NCB’s counsel AM Chimalkar and Advait Sethna sought a week to respond and file an affidavit.
Will the investigation be hindered or not?
He said that the investigation of the case is still going on. A lot of material has also been collected by the agency, and it needs to be seen at this stage whether the release of Aryan Khan on bail will hamper the investigation of the case. Desai, however, opposed it and said it was a question of the liberty of an individual. He argued that the release of the accused on bail would not stop the investigation in the case.
Desai said granting bail would not stop the investigation. NCB may continue the research. This is their job. It is not necessary to keep the deceased client in custody. Because nothing has been recovered from him. No narcotic substance was found from him, and no other material was also found against him. Since his arrest, he has been in the custody of the NCB for a week, and his statement has been recorded twice. What is the need to keep him in jail now?
NCB to oppose bail
NCB officials say that even though drugs have not been recovered from Aryan Khan, they have many reasons to oppose Aryan Khan’s bail. Officials said there are statements that ‘We were both drinking, we were both,’ i.e. someone provided drugs, someone was in contact with the drugs paddler, someone manufactured it. NCB says they will present the evidence related to Aryan’s involvement in this matter before the court.
