On Wednesday (October 20), Mumbai’s Special NDPS Court rejects bail applications of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha and others in the drugs case. The accused will continue to stay in Arthur Road jail and Byculla jail. They were arrested on October 3 in connection with a drug seizure on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. Last week a Mumbai magistrate's court sent Aryan Khan, besides seven other accused to 14 days of judicial custody. Post which, Aryan's lawyer Satish Maneshinde filed a bail plea.
The court rejected Aryan Khan and others' bail plea, post which the star kid's lawyer Satish Maneshinde moved to Sessions Court for bail. NCB opposed the bail and stated that they need the accused in custody to confront them with other accused.
Meanwhile, the two women accused - Munmun Dhamecha and Nupur Sarika - had been shunted to the Byculla Women's Jail, and the others - Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant, Vikrant Chhoker, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, and Gomit Chopra had been sent to the ARCJ.
In the high-drama rave party raid on October 2, the NCB had stated that it recovered drugs like 13 grams cocaine, 21 gms charas, 5 gms MD, and 22 MDMA pills in the operation from the accused, most of whom are linked to the glamour and entertainment industry.
