On Wednesday, the Bombay High Court Adjourned the Bail Application Hearing of Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant.

The Single-Judge Bench of the Bombay High Court has adjourned the hearing of Bail Applications for Thursday i.e. October 28.

While, Advocate Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh, Senior Counsel Amit Desai, and Advocate Mukul Rohatgi appearing for various accused concluded their arguments on Wednesday.

On the other hand, ASG Anil Singh, who was appearing for the NCB, stated that he would reply to arguments on Thursday.

“I will try to finish my arguments within one hour,” stated ASG Singh.

Desai, who was appearing for Arbaaz, stated that there were no chance of forming any conspiracy, as stated by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

“If there are three unconnected persons coming for the same purpose, that is not conspiracy,” stated Desai.

Desai also stated that WhatsApp chats that are being used as an evidence by NCB, were not related to the Mumbai Cruise Case.

Senior Advocate and former Attorney General of India Mukul Rohatgi, who was appearing on for Aryan, also stated that NCB is trying to mislead the case by using WhatsApp Chats.

“They have the phone but they don’t tell us (in remand). We don’t have access to the chats. They have chats, they have possession and yet they chose to mislead me by not telling me what has been recovered,” stated Advocate Mukul Rohatgi.

Mukul Rohatgi also argued that the arrest is Arbitrary, and stated that NCB has no proof that Aryan had consumed any drugs or he had any possession of it.

Adding to this, he also stated that the NCB didn’t even conducted medical examination to prove consumption of any Drugs.

The Single-Judge Bench of Justice Nitin W Sambre after hearing the arguments Adjourned the Matter for today and scheduled another Hearing for tomorrow.

It should be noted that all three of them were Arrested in their connection with the Cruise rave party from where Drugs were seized and were booked under Sections 8(c), 20, 27, and 35 of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
