Cruise ship rave party: Key arguments by Aryan Khan’s lawyer in Bombay HC today

Bhubaneswar/Mumbai: During the Bombay High Court’s hearing on a bail application moved by Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan, former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi presented Aryan’s case in the court.

The Narcotics Control Bureau opposed the bail application of Aryan Khan while terming him as the ‘accused No 1 ‘and alleged that he was in contact with an “international drug cartel”.

In a counter-affidavit, Aryan denied the charges and insisted that he had nothing to do with a payment allegation involving NCB officer Sameer Wankhede.

Following are the key arguments presented by Mukul Rohtagi in the court today:

a) 6 gms of Charas was recorded from Accused Number 2 (Arbaz Merchant), and I (Aryan) have no relation with him except for arriving with him there. There was no recovery. There was no proof of consumption.

b) As there was no recovery no consumption, I say that I’m (Aryan Khan) arrested wrongly. What is put against me is that accused 2 (Arbaz Merchant) came with me and was having something with him. So I am charged with conscious possession of drugs

c) How can I be charged with conscious possession if someone carried something in his shoes?

d) There’s one more thing put against me (Aryan) – my WhatsApp chats of 2018, 2019 & 2020. These chats are not related to Cruise case. Cruise case started with Gaba (Pratik Gaba) & ended there. There is no connection between my chats and present case of Cruise
