Lawyers of accused Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaz Merchant concluded arguments on their bail applications before Bombay High Court in the Drugs-on-cruise case on Wednesday.
Mumbai: Lawyers of accused Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaz Merchant concluded arguments on their bail applications before Bombay High Court in the Drugs-on-cruise case on Wednesday. The bail hearing is to resume tomorrow (Thursday).
ASG Anil Singh for NCB will respond to the arguments tomorrow.
On the second high profile drug case, Senior Advocate Amit Desai argued that Arbaaz Merchant, that NCB has falsely implicated Marchant in a cruise ship drug case, in which Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan son Aryan Khan was arrested.
Mr. Desai argued before justice Nitin Sambre stated that “Law is- bail is rule and jail is an exception, but in this case, an arrest is rule and bail is an exception”.
"The arguments of accused number 1, 2 and 3 have concluded today. Hearing scheduled for 3pm tomorrow for further arguments", Munmun Dhamecha's lawyer Kaashif Khan Deshmukh told news agency ANI.
He has cited the related judgement of Arnesh Kumar in the NDPS act, where bail is granted to the accused.
Justice Justice Nitin Sambre was hearing the bail petition filed by Aryan Khan and three other accused. The Session Court had dismissed the bail plea on October 20 on the ground that WhatsApp chats of Aryan Khan will be indicated, "he is dealing in illicit drug activities of narcotic substances on a regular basis", so it could not be said he is not likely to commit similar offences while on bail.
Mukul Rohatgi appearing for Aryan Khan on Tuesday argued, "I am concerned that there is no recovery, no consumption, no past history and no medical test. Merchant had 6 gms of charas which was recovered from his shoes. Merchant is denying it. I am not concerned, except that he is my friend, I have no connection with that sizer."
