On Thursday, the special NDPS court heard the arguments of NCB and Aryan’s lawyer Amit Desai. The NCB argued that Aryan cannot be granted bail as the bail has nothing to do with the quantity of medicine recovered from the 23-year-old. NCB’s lawyer Anil Singh also claimed that Aryan used to take drugs regularly, his WhatsApp conversations showed. He said that the fact that drugs were not found with Aryan is insignificant as there are some provisions in the NDPS Act where recovery of drugs is not important at all. Hindustan Times report.
Aryan’s counsel argued that the context of the WhatsApp chat should be important as casual conversations between friends on the messaging app may look suspicious. He also noted that Aryan was abroad for some time where many of these things are legal.
Aryan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau after raiding a rave party on a cruise to Goa.
While Aryan’s legal proceedings continue, his parents Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are getting the support of their friends from the industry. Salman Khan has met her a few times at his house Mannat in Mumbai. After Aryan’s arrest, his sister Alvira also came to meet the family.
