NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede led this raid on Saturday evening, and he issued Crime no. Cr 94/21 in regards to this crime. The NCB officials told PTI that the detainees had hidden drugs in their clothes, undergarments, and the women hid them in their purses.
Apart from Aryan Khan, the list of detainees includes Arbaaz Merchant, Gomit Chopra, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker, Nupur Sarika, and Munmun Dhamecha.
The Outcome Of The Raid
The NCB official said that the detainees would be presented in Court on Monday. But, Aryan Khan’s lawyer, Maeen Memon, said that Aryan had minimal drugs in his possession, so his crime is bailable.
While NCB is conducting further investigation to find out the sources of drugs in this rave party, Aryan’s lawyer said that the officials violated the NDPS Act. According to the lawyer, Aryan was alleged to be a part of this rave party, and since the total amount of drugs found on the cruise is nominal, Aryan’s crime becomes easily bailable.
The officials also snatched Aryan Khan’s phone and kept it as evidence to find out if he was involved in any sort of drug rings or not. Apart from Aryan, some teenage girls were arrested from this party, and some of them are claimed to be the daughters of renowned businessmen.
The police are currently talking to the party organizers to find out more leads on this event. As Aryan’s lawyer is firmly arguing about his crime as a bailable offense, we still need to wait to hear the judge’s verdict. Stay with us, and we will keep on updating you on this news.
