Aryan was sent into NCB custody till October 7. It has been reported that Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appeared for the NCB and sought further custody. A report in Bar and Bench states ASG brought up the charges put on Rhea Chakraborty to state how the charges were “non-bailable.”
The Solicitor General reportedly read out the Bombay High Court Judgment to point out that all the NDPS offences levelled at them were non-bailable.
Maneshinde had reportedly argued that Aryan was invited to the cruise along with his friend Merchant and that he had not paid any money to get on the ship. “Nothing incriminating was recovered from Aryan Khan except his mobile phone. His friend (Merchant) was arrested because he had six grams of charas, but that has nothing to do with my client,” Maneshinde said.
He also refuted the NCB’s claims that Khan consumed drugs even when he was abroad. “During the entire period of his (Aryan) stay abroad, he has not been involved in any trafficking, supply or distribution of drugs,” Maneshinde added.
Meanwhile, reports state that the NCB is likely to seek an extension in the custody of Aryan Khan today. According to a report on Times Now, this comes after the NCB arrested a foreign national from Bandra late Wednesday night. It was reported that a commercial quantity of mephedrone (MD) was recovered from him.
