Aryan Khan Case Latest Update: Many accused, including Aryan Khan, are in judicial custody in the cruise drugs case. NCB's inquiry is continuing. In the investigation, NCB came to know that Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, Prateek Gaba, and another person had gone out from Mannat to party together in a Mercedes car on a cruise. Now Prateek Gaba, an important link, in this case, has been questioned by the investigating agency for about seven hours.
NCB may also call Prateek Gaba again for questioning. At present, the investigating officers say that no one has been given a clean chit in this case. In fact, this statement of the officials came after NCP leader Nawab Malik accused the investigating agency of letting Prateek Gaba, Amir Furniturewala, and Rishabh Sachdeva leave the cruise after the raid.
Shahrukh's driver was also questioned
In his statement, Aryan Khan had said that he did not accompany anyone on the cruise, he was called to add glamor to the party, but when NCB questioned Shahrukh's driver, the whole truth came to the fore. According to the driver, he dropped Aryan and Arbaaz together at the cruise terminus.
Aryan Khan was sent to judicial custody for 14 days after his bail was rejected. He was brought to Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai. Although his lawyer immediately filed an application for bail, on Friday the magistrate refused to grant him bail on the ground that the Esplanade court had no jurisdiction to hear his application. Now the matter will be heard on Wednesday at 2.45 pm.
Bail Petition Filed On This Basis
Aryan Khan's bail plea has been filed on the ground that no drugs were recovered from him and he had no collusion with the accused. Also, no evidence has been found that Aryan Khan had consumed drugs.
On the other hand, NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede has alleged that some Mumbai Police officers are spying on him. Sameer Wankhede had raided a cruise ship going from Mumbai to Goa in the past. During this, large quantities of narcotics were recovered from here and more than a dozen people including Aryan Khan were also arrested in this case.
