For the uninitiated, Aryan has been one of the accused in the cruise drugs bust case which is being investigated by the Narcotics Control Bureau. And while the hearing began after 11 am today, the recent update states that the court will continue the hearing tomorrow.
During the hearing, the NCB told the court that Aryan has been involved in ‘illicit procurement & distribution of contraband’. The agency also stated, “The investigation is still in progress. Khan and Arbaaz Merchant have been associated in close collaboration with each other which is sufficient to attract offences under Section 29 NDPS act”.
On the other hand, Aryan’s lawyer Amit Desai argued saying that nothing suspicious was recovered from Aryan and called NCB’s allegation of Aryan being a part of an illicit international drug trafficking ring absurd.
Meanwhile, as the court will continue to hear the bail plea tomorrow, ASG, as Bar and Bench, argued saying “There are chats which mention about commercial or bulk quantities, then there are talks with a foreign national with reference to hard drugs”.
