A special NDPS court on Wednesday rejected Aryan Khan’s bail plea in the drugs-on-cruise case. The 23-year-old who is currently lodged in the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, was arrested on October 3.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) submitted more WhatsApp chats in court on Wednesday. “Police has found drug-related WhatsApp chats that are allegedly between Aryan Khan and a debut actress,” the ANI quoted the NCB in a tweet. However, the actress’s name has not been revealed.
Aryan was arrested after the NCB raided a cruise ship and busted a drugs party off the coast of Mumbai last week. He was held under Section 8C, 20B, 27 read with 35 of the NDPS Act. Besides Aryan, the others arrested were identified as Munmun Dhamecha, Arbaaz Merchant, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Gomit Chopra, Nupur Sarika, and Vikrant Chhokar.
While seeking the custody of Aryan, Munmun and Arbaaz, the NCB had said there was evidence to show a nexus between the arrested persons and suppliers and peddlers of drugs and banned narcotic substances regularly. Prima facie investigation, the NCB said, revealed that there is incriminating material in the form of WhatsApp chats and more.
