Aryan Khan’s bail denied, after his sensational arrest
New Delhi, Oct. 04: Aryan Khan, son of movie star Shah Rukh Khan, was denied bail today after his sensational arrest in the Mumbai drugs-on-cruise case. The 23-year-old was sent to the custody of anti-drugs agency Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) till Thursday by a Mumbai court. Aryan Khan’s parents Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan did not attend the bail hearing.
“Investigation is of prime importance and it needs to be carried out. It benefits both accused and investigator,” a judge said while extending the custody of Aryan Khan and seven others.
Aryan Khan was “calm” while his friends Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha broke down when the judge announced the decision.
All eight were arrested on Sunday after the anti-drugs agency went undercover and raided a rave party on Saturday evening on the “Cordelia”cruise sailing from Mumbai to Goa.
The raids produced a haul of 13 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of charas, 22 pills of MDMA and 5 grams of MD, the anti-drugs bureau said. The drugs were found hidden in clothes, underwear and purses, reported news agency Press Trust of India, quoting an unnamed official of the anti-drugs bureau.
The agency told the court that it needed Aryan Khan in custody till October 11 (Monday week) to question him. The Narcotics Control Bureau alleged that the case involves an international drug cartel.
“Unless we investigate the consumer how do we know who is the supplier, who is financing it,” the agency said.
“Links in the form of chats etc. show the involvement of international cartel. It is a group of persons, like a gang,” the agency’s lawyer told the court, adding that “code names” were found in Aryan Khan’s chats and links of bank and cash transfers that had to be verified.Aryan Khan argued that he was a special invitee to the cruise ship and “cannot be roped in with the entire seizure in the case”.
