Mumbai: The Mumbai Special NDPS Court on Wednesday adjourned its hearing on bail applications of Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan and two others till October 14, 2021.
Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha have been sent to the Arthur Road Central Jail and the Byculla Women’s Jail till October 20.
Yesterday, the court had differed the trio’s bail pleas till October 13, 2021.
In connection with the cruise ship drug party case, eight persons including Aryan Kahn were detained initially on October 2 after the NCB raided the rave party aboard Cordelia Cruise.
On October 3, the NCB arrested the eight persons. They were declined bail by Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R.M. Nerlikar last Friday on grounds of maintainability and shunted to the jails.
After these arrests, the NCB has swooped in different parts of Mumbai and nabbed another dozen accused — taking the total to 20 so far.
The NCB action in full media blitzkrieg has sparked off a huge political slugfest with the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress calling the raids a politically motivated ‘hoax’ besides demanding an independent enquiry against the central agency and its officials.
However, the NCB has hit back, claiming no wrongdoings or irregularities and asserting that all due rules and procedures were followed in the raids and subsequent actions.
