Aryan Khan Case: Our Case Is Strong, Says NCB Director Sameer Wankhede
Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) director Sameer Wankhede said that the agency has a strong case against Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, who was denied bail by a Mumbai court on Friday.
“We and the prosecution will make attempt that the case will go to a logical conclusion. Our case is strong and will present the same in the court,” the NCB director was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
It may be recalled that the NCB arrested Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant amongst others following a raid on a cruise ship in Mumbai on October 2.
Aryan Khan, through his lawyer Satish Maneshinde, told the court that he hails from a respectable family during the hearing of the case.
“I am 23-year-old with no antecedents. I happen to be from Bollywood. When I reached there they searched me and nothing was found. They went through my mobile and they downloaded all the data. Mobile has been sent for forensic examination. From the first day till today nothing has emerged. Contact with Archit was revealed on first day and they took their own time. Their contention is I am required for confrontation. That has been rejected by the Supreme Court. Top Court says interrogation, investigation, confrontation can take place when someone is released on bail,” Aryan Khan’s lawyer Satish presented the argument in the court, reported NDTV.
According to a Livelaw report, Aryan’s lawyer further stated, “Search and seizure can not be cited just to lock me up in the jail. The normal tendency of the court is to grant bail. There is an accusation, there is no material. I was abroad when those chats happen”.
