The Mumbai session court which was hearing the bail plea of Aryan Khan in in connection with the seizure of banned drugs on board a cruise ship off Mumbai coast, has reserved the verdict till October 20th. The court will now pronounce its order on Aryan Khan bail plea on October 20th. During the hearing on Wednesday, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) told the court that Aryan Khan was involved in the conspiracy, illicit drug trafficking as well as its procurement and consumption.
Aryan Khan’s lawyer Amit Desai stressed that no drugs were found on him when officers in disguise raided a rave party on the ship. In fact, he was not even on the ship when the raids started, he argued. He also claimed Aryan Khan “had no cash” when he was on the ship, so he could not have bought drugs. The NCB dismissed the argument, saying Aryan Khan used to source his drugs from Arbaaz Merchant.
