Apart from this, accused numbers 1 to 8 were arrested and some quantity of banned substances were found with them. NCB had received information about the rave party on the cruise. Even during interrogation, the accused have disclosed the names of the people supplying drugs. This indicates that the accused are involved in some criminal conspiracy.
