Aryan Khan and others on Custody till October 7; In tears after the extension of custody

Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, has been remanded in detention till Thursday, October 7, a day after the Narcotics Control Bureau arrested him and seven others on a cruise ship drugs case off the coast of Mumbai Friday evening.

The seven suspects arrested from the ship were Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker, Gomit Chopra, and Arbaaz Merchant.

The NCB, the anti-drugs agency, had requested that Aryan Khan be held in detention for a longer period. The bureau wrote, “Need him in custody until October 11 for questioning.” “How can we know who is the supplier, who is financing it until we probe the consumer?” the agency asked the court, claiming that a worldwide cartel is involved in the case.

The 23-year-old claimed he was a special invitee on the cruise liner and “cannot be involved in the entire seizure in the case.”

Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, who were also arrested in the same case, have been detained by the NCB until October 7. They were in tears after the judge issued an order remanding them in detention.

The high-profile operation on Sunday yielded 13 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of charas, 22 tablets of MDMA, and 5 grams of MD, according to the NCB. According to the article, Aryan Khan has been charged with the purchase, possession, and use of illegal substances.

Aryan Khan’s lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, has requested bail, stating that his client was jailed entirely based on communications. “Aryan couldn’t board the ship because he didn’t have a ticket, a cabin, or a seat. He was there because he’d been invited. He didn’t have any sort of boarding pass. His identity has remained a mystery. He was detained purely because of a conversation.”

According to sources, the NCB team boarded the Goa-bound ship on Saturday morning dressed as passengers. According to officials, the celebration began after the ship departed Mumbai and was at sea. According to the report, the raids began at 10 a.m. and lasted until 2 p.m.
