NEW DELHI: The Mumbai Special NDPS court, which was hearing the bail plea of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmum Dhamecha in drug seizure case, reserved its order for October 20. The court will now pronounce its order on Aryan Khan's bail plea on October 20.
During the court hearing, the Narcotics Control Bureau claimed that Aryan khan was involved in illicit drug trafficking, procuring and distribution of drugs. After hearing extensive arguments of the investigating agency NCB and defense lawyers on Thursday, special judge V V Patil posted the matter for orders on next Wednesday.
Earlier today, in his final submission to special NDPS court, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh argued that when considering a case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, the scheme and the object of the act must be taken into consideration. "When we are considering a case under an NDPS act, the scheme and the object of the act must be taken into consideration...because it`s affecting the nation. From time to time straight action is taken. NCB is working day and night and dealing with drugs in serious manners," said the ASG.
"My four to five officers were beaten a few days back not in this case but another case, so I am saying it is affecting the society and college students in particular. The younger generation is the future of the country. It`s the land of Mamata Gandhi, we should stop the circulation of the drug. We are looking into the chain, transition. We are in the primarily stage and it`s a case of conspiracy we are investigating," he said.
Earlier, a magistrate's court had rejected the bail pleas of Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant. The three were among those arrested from the Goa-bound cruise ship on October 3.
