The NCB team raided the drugs party being held on the cruise in Mumbai on Sunday night. During this, the team had detained 8 people, including the son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. On Thursday, 8 accused, including Aryan Khan, were heard in the court on bail and all were sent to judicial custody for 14 days. During the hearing, Aryan Khan’s lawyer Satish Manshinde argued that the NCB has not done any specific questioning of his client in all these days. NCB has kept Aryan Khan as hostess in this way. During the hearing in the court, Aryan’s lawyer Satish Manshinde said that as far as Aryan’s case is concerned, on the first day he immediately agreed for one more day’s remand, thinking that it would lead to some development in the case. But apart from a few more arrests, nothing else has happened. As far as the questioning of Aryan is concerned, the officials have asked nothing other than questions related to his stay abroad. Satish Manshinde said that if anyone is arrested on Aryan Khan statement, then some senior officer associated with the investigation should have made sure whether it is the same person or not, whether Aryan is related to him or not, but from yesterday to today Nothing like this has happened till now. Yesterday, when he arrested Achit Kumar, he should have made Aryan confront him. It should have been seen whether Achit was really related to Arbaaz or Aryan. But the officials did not do so. As such, face-to-face should not be the sole ground for seeking remand. Satish Manshinde said that the officers took his mobile from Aryan. They have nothing to do with the organisers. Aryan does not deny that Arbaaz is his friend. Aryan has only questioned on the basis of chats. Achit is the only person whom Aryan has to face and be interrogated. It can happen at any time, any day. This can happen even after Aryan is given bail. Satish Manshinde said that Aryan Khan has not been interrogated for two nights, then what is the need to interrogate him in custody now? Why should they be given custody? As far as I am aware, no one has been interrogated till now by sitting in front of Aryan. No drugs found. There was nothing in Aryan’s bag. Nor did Aryan tamper with his phone. When NCB has not been able to do anything in this till now, what will it do next? Satish Manshinde said that NCB is constantly saying that they have to reach the main accused, if so why is Aryan being kept as a hostess, while he has not been able to catch the main accused yet. Leaving aside all the other things, Aryan has spent a long time in the custody. So far no significant progress has been made in the matter. If there are no allegations against Aryan. If there is anyone regarding the supply of material, then Aryan has not bought it from anyone. I think after going through the case diary, the court will also observe that there is no need to extend the custody.
