Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan
Aryan Khan, son of movie star Shah Rukh Khan, was denied bail today following his high-profile arrest in the Mumbai Drugs-on-Cruise case. The 23-year-old was arrested by a Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) court in Mumbai on Thursday. 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 the accused and investigator," a judge said as he extended custody of Aryan Khan and seven other people.Aryan Khan was "calm" as his friends Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha collapsed as the judge announced the decision.All eight were arrested on Sunday after drug authorities infiltrated and searched a rave party on the “Cordelia” cruise from Mumbai to Goa on Saturday night.The raids resulted in 13 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of Charas, 22 MDMA pills and 5 grams of MD, the drug agency said.
The drugs were found hidden in clothes, underwear and handbags, the Press Trust of India news agency reported, citing an undisclosed pharmaceutical agency.The agency told the court that Aryan Khan would be held for questioning until October 11 (Monday week). The Narcotics Control Bureau said it was 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 cartels.
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 remittances and money loans for verification.Aryan Khan claimed he was a special guest on the cruise ship and "cannot be roped in with the entire seizure in the case".He said investigators found nothing in his pocket and found 6 grams in his pocket, "a small quantity.
"He also said agents only found chats on his phone, and “ WhatsApp chats without any recovery” made no sense.drug usage," said senior lawyer Satish Maneshinde, appearing for Aryan Khan."One of the grounds for asking for my custody is seizure of commercial quantity from other accused. Commercial quantities seized from other accused cannot be foisted on me. They are talking about international drug trafficking which is a very serious charge and has to be backed by evidence," said Aryan Khan.Aryan Khan is said to have bought, possessed and used illegal substances.
