KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The Special NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Court in Mumbai has reserved its decision on the bail applications filed by Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha, who were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau on October 3 in connection with the cruise ship drug case.
  • Arguments for all three applicants concluded in the earlier days.

BACKGROUND

  • On October 7, a Mumbai Magistrate denied the accused further NCB custody and remanded them to judicial custody.
  • After hearing Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appear for NCB today, Special Judge VV Patil stated that he will issue an order on October 20.
  • During the hearing, the Judge stated that he would review Khan's allegedly incriminating WhatsApp chats.
  • The NCB claims Khan is involved in the illegal "procurement and distribution" of contraband, and that he was in contact with some people in other countries who appear to be part of an International Drug Network for illicit procurement.
  • Senior Advocate Amit Desai, who was representing Aryan Khan, denied the allegations and stated that Khan had not recovered. "If he did not have cash, he had no plans to purchase. If he had no substance, he wasn't going to sell or consume, "Desai submitted.
  • The attorneys of other accused argued that they were only invited to the party and had no involvement in the alleged illegal drug trade.
  • It was also claimed that the alleged recoveries were of a "small quantity" and not commercial in nature.
