According to reports, NCB sources confirmed that a new arrest has been made. The central agency has also alleged that ‘Arbaaz shared some drugs with Aryan’.
Further investigation is currently underway.
The NCB’s team busted an alleged drugs party on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa at mid-sea on October 2 night. A total of 18 people, including a Nigerian national, have been arrested in the case.
Aryan and the other accused had applied for bail on Friday after spending 5 days in NCB custody. However, the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate(ACMM) R M Nerlikar rejected their bail pleas.
In the 15-page order, the details of which were made available on Saturday, he said “this court ceases its jurisdiction to entertain the applications for bail” considering section 36A and the fact that all three were held for one crime under various provisions of the NDPS Act for which the prescribed punishment was more than three years.
All the alleged offences are exclusively triable by the special court, his order further stated.
