Aryan Khan’s bail hearing was denied on 13th October and the Narcotics Control Bureau claimed that he is involved in the case to a point that they are concerned about “illicit procurement and distribution of contraband”.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, the NCB told Mumbai Court, “Material collected during investigation has primarily revealed that Aryan Khan has played a role in so far as illicit procurement and distribution of contraband is concerned. There is material on record to show that Khan was in touch with some persons abroad who appear to be a part of an international drug network for illicit procurement of drugs. The investigation is still in progress. Khan and Arbaaz Merchant have been associated in close collaboration with each other which is sufficient to attract offences under Section 29 NDPS act. It is so far apparent that Aachit and Harijan supplied charas to Khan and Merchant”.
They further went on to add, “The investigation reveals that all persons form part of larger chain and their involvement in conspiracy and commit illegal acts cannot be ruled out. In the same CR, there have been several seizures in intermediary quantity from co-accused; there has also been seizure of commercial quantity of mephedrone from one accused. Thus, one of these applicants cannot be considered in isolation. All these persons are an integral part of a common thread which cannot be separated or dissected from each other. In such a situation, the quantum of recovery from an individual becomes inconsequential”.
Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani is thought to have applied to be allowed at court proceedings as Aryan’s representative.
