    Bombay High Court allows bail to #AryanKhan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. Court will pronounce detailed order with reasons tomorrow.

  • 4:39 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Rohatgi cites the recent Supreme Court judgment in Sanjeev Chandra Agarwal to say admissibility of Sect 67 statements can be considered at bail stage.

    Rohatgi says, "Come to Nawaz Malik judgment.  This was a case where there was a car and three people were there and one was carrying substance. So then there was a submission that the possession was not conscious."

  • 4:33 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Mukul Rohatgi argues, "Their case is if it is not a coincidence, but a conspiracy. There has to be meeting of minds. Say a telephone call between all 8. So apart from Arbaaz, none of these chaps has anything to do with me".

    He adds, "Apart from the people mentioned in the chart, there were two other people one is Manav and Gaba(who invited me). They were not arrested. There is no material to allege a conspiracy. I can understand if even all ten were friends. It is true that it is difficult to prove conspiracy but facts will always speak.

  • 4:31 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Mukul Rohatgi - If it is their argument that admissibility of Section 67 statement cannot be seen at this stage, then that would be a violation of Article 21.

  • 4:29 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Mukul Rohtagi says Aryan Khan knew nobody on the ship except for Arbaaz  and Achit. "Achit was arrested after 4 days. He was said to be dealer & had 2.4 gms (of drug). A dealer should have 200 gms," he tells Bombay HC.

  • 4:26 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Sr. Adv. Rohatgi: If there are people in a hotel in different rooms and they smoke, are all people in hotel in conspiracy? There is no material for calling it a conspiracy in this case.

    Aryan Khan's lawyer Mukul Rohatgi starts final submissions before the Bombay High Court after the submission of ASG Anil Singh. He says, "I (Aryan) was not aware what he (Arbaaz) was carrying, take it that I knew.. but the most that they can allege against us is commercial quantity collectively."

  • 4:22 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    "Conspiracy is difficult to prove, the conspirators know how they conspired. I leave it to the conscious of the court," ASG Anil Singh says concluding his submissions

  • 4:18 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    ASG Anil Singh tells Bombay HC, "Assuming that there was any irregularities at the time arrests, that has been rectified after remand order. It is my submission."

  • 4:07 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    ASG Anil Singh says the arrest memo mentions about commercial quantity (of drugs) & it also mentions that he (Aryan Khan) had a connection with commercial quantity. They have still not challenged the remand orders. 

  • 3:56 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    ASG Anil Singh tells Bombay HC, "Aryan Khan was aware that Arbaaz was in possession. Charas was for smoking and it was for the consumption of both though it was with Arbaaz physically."

  • 3:55 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Anil Singh is referring to the Supreme Court's decision regarding the NDPS Act, how the Supreme Court has made a strong remark about drug dealing to be a heinous crime.

  • 3:41 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

     ASG Anil Singh says, "If we relied upon WhatsApp chat, he (Aryan Khan) had made an attempt to deal in commercial quantity (of drugs)."

    He further says, "Ecstasy was of commercial quantity. It can't be said that drug was for personal consumption."

  • 3:34 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    Anil Singh argues "Defence has spoken about testing. Why testing? Our case is not of consumption but of possession. Accused 1 was in conscious possession of drugs"

  • 3:33 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    ASG: Their contention was that I was not found with possession. It may not have been found on your body but then see the panchnama. It was found from Arbaaz.

  • 3:23 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    ASG Anil Singh: Arbaaz, accused number 2, is Aryan's childhood friend. Both left Aryan's house before the cruise party and reached the cruise terminal. Both were living in the same room. We have imposed section 28 on conscious contraband possession. So this section has been imposed on Aryan.

  • 3:03 PM (IST) Posted by Parina Taneja

    ASG Anil Singh begins his arguments

    ASG Anil Singh argues that Aryan Khan has been taking drugs for the past many years. There is evidence that he is taking it in bulk. Apart from this, Aryan is in contact with many peddlers. A total of 12 people were about to go on a cruise out of which 11 were caught by NCB. Achit Kumar caught in this case is a drug peddler who has been arrested later and is accused number 17.

    He adds that Aryan has been a part of the whole conspiracy in this case.  Anil Singh cites Rhea and Showik Chakraborty's case that both were not granted bail in this section. So Aryan should not get it either. Section 28 has been imposed in this case because Aryan was a part of this whole conspiracy and deal was being attempted in a commercial quantity.

    Ramdas Athawale: Drug addicts should be sent to rehabilitation centres, not jail

    Athawale on Wednesday said people caught consuming drugs should be sent to rehabilitation centres instead of jail and there must be a change in this law. Athawale addressed a press conference at Lucknow and detailed on the several welfare schemes of the Union Government. He said, "People who drink alcohol are not sent to prison. But there is a provision in the law that people who consume drugs can be sent to jail. Our ministry feels that the accused charged with drug consumption will be not sent to jail but to a rehabilitation centre." "The law needs to be changed," he added.
