On Monday, Satish Maneshinde and Advocate Amit Desai came before the Special NDPS Court. They pleaded for the matter to be adjourned for an urgent hearing in Aryan’s case. Bail was also requested by Arbaaz Merchant. The lawyer for the NCB requested till Thursday to file their responses. Maneshinde and Desai, on the other hand, demanded an expedited hearing. Additional Sessions Judge VV Patil scheduled the bail petition hearing for Wednesday 13th October. The decision was taken after hearing NCB’s lawyer’s request as well as Aryan’s legal side’s appeal.
Aryan and Arbaaz reportedly acknowledged using drugs, according to the NCB panchnama obtained by India Today. According to the claim, Arbaaz had Charas in his shoes. He took it out and displayed it to the NCB authorities when they stopped them to interview. The two were eventually taken to the NCB office. They were interrogated and arrested under the NDPS Act 1985. They also arrested Munmun Dhamecha and others.
Aryan was transferred to Arthur Road jail on Friday after the Court ordered him to be held in judicial custody. According to reports, he was supposed to spend 3-5 days in the jail’s quarantine cell. Several Bollywood celebrities have expressed their support for Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan following Aryan’s arrest.
