Latest News Of Aryan Khan Bail Rejected In Drug Case
Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB on October 3, after drugs were seized at a cruise party that he was attending.
Seven others were also arrested in the case, with the NCB carrying out several other follow-up drug busts and arrests across the city.
During the hearing on October 7, the NCB had sought the custody of the arrested till October 11. However, Metropolitan Magistrate RM Nilekar had sent Aryan Khan and others to 14 days of judicial custody, after rejecting the plea by the NCB.
In their argument, the NCB had stated that 17 people were arrested and that Achit Kumar, the latest arrest in the case, was taken into custody based on Aryan’s statement.
It also stated that another raid was to be conducted and any possible arrests will need to be confronted with those currently in custody.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Mumbai Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede, who is closely investigating the case, had recently stated that the agency is not specifically targeting Bollywood.
He said, “I would not like to quote or pinpoint a particular case. All cases are important to us. All angles are important to us, including the financial one. We are taking action down to the peddler level. We came to know that this (drug abuse) is a deep-rooted problem in Mumbai and Goa. We are fortunate to work for the NCB. It’s a national service, it’s an issue of national interest. We will fight it till the end.”
