The NCB had sought further custody of Aryan Khan, Arbaz Seth Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha till Monday (11 October). However, the court rejected the prayer; saying simply remanding the accused to custody without reason is cogent ground for violating liberty.
The anti-drugs agency shifted Aryan Khan and other accused to Arthur Jail.
Aryan and five others are kept in barrack number 1 on the first floor of the jail. It’s a special quarantine barrack. Aryan Khan and five other accused will be kept in quarantine for five days. If they get any symptoms related to Covid-19, they will be tested.
No uniform has been assigned to Aryan Khan and others.
The NCB on 2 October carried out raids at an alleged rave party at a cruise off Mumbai coast. It seized 13 grams of cocaine, 5 grams of MD, 21 grams of charas and 22 pills of Ecstasy and ₹1.33 lakh.
The agency detained eight persons — Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker, Gomit Chopra.
After hours of questioning, the NCB formally arrested Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha. Three persons have been booked under Section 8C, 20B, 27 (Punishment for consumption of any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance) and 35 (Presumption of culpable mental state) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS Act).
