MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court has adjourned the hearing of bail petitions filed by Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Marchant and Munmun Dhamecha, till tomorrow.
The bail petitions have been filed in connection with their arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3, after the agency busted a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai and seized several banned narcotics on October 2.
In an affidavit filed in Bombay HC, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has opposed Aryan Khan’s bail application, saying that if granted bail he can affect the probe, influence the witnesses and tamper with the evidence.
“There is an international drug racket going on and the agency needs time to unearth it. If given bail, Aryan can affect the investigation, influence the witnesses and tamper with the evidence,” the NCB said.
The NCB will respond to the applicants’ arguments tomorrow. The ASG said he will try to complete arguments within one hour. “Hearing has been scheduled for 3 pm tomorrow for further arguments,” Dhamecha’s lawyer stated.
