Mumbai, Oct 20 (ILNS) A Special Mumbai Court today rejected the bail application of Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan and two others Arbaaz Merchant and model Munmun Dhamecha.
Aryan Khan is currently lodged in Arthur Road prison in Mumbai after he was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau following the alleged drug seizure from a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2. Seven others including Aryan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant and model Munmun Dhamecha were also arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after a raid on Cordelia’s cruise ship.
Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh, appearing for the NCB, argued that there was need to take a “serious view” of drug abuse among youngsters and that the principle of innocent until proven guilty does not apply under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. “The present applicant (Aryan) is not a consumer for the first time. The evidence placed before the court shows that he is a regular consumer of contraband for the last few years./ILNS/SNG/
