Why Did Aryan Khan Not Get Bail?
Aryan was repeatedly denied getting bail from the Mumbai Court ever since he was arrested in the Mumbai drugs case. During yesterday’s hearing, the court revealed he may have been involved in illicit drug activities. The court made this revelation on the basis of Whatsapp chats recovered from his mobile phone.
Judge VV Patil who was hearing the case said, “ Whatsapp Chats prima facie reveals accused Aryan Khan is dealing in illicit drug activities for narcotic substances on regular basis, Therefore it cannot be said the Khan is not likely to commit a similar offense while on bail. “
Furthermore, the Judge suspects that information revealed during the investigation may be linked to drug nexus. However, NCB did not receive any amount of drugs from Aryan Khan’s possession.
His friend Arbaaz Merchant who was also arrested with one more had a few grams of charas which was kept hidden in his shoe. Both Aryan and Arbaz in their statements have agreed to possess such substances which they only used for fun.
All the three are booked under NDPS Act and both male accused are kept in Arthur Road jail whereas Munmun is prisoned at a women’s jail in Byculla.
