“My Bag Was Searched, Then They Took Custody Of My Phone & Interrogated Me”: Aryan Khan

Actor Shahrukh Khan received a lot of support from people in Bollywood after his son Aryan was arrested by the NCB after raiding a cruise ship. The NCB allegedly stated that “shocking incriminating material has been found on his phone in the form of pictures”, this includes conversations of “procuring in bulk for further distribution.”

Soon after, Aryan along with Arbaaz Merchantt and Munmun Dhamecha were produced before the court for their 2nd remand hearing in the case.

TOI reports that Advocate Satish Maneshinde, appearing for Aryan, stated, “My bag was searched but nothing was found. After some time, they took custody of my phone and began interrogating me. Mr Merchantt is a friend of mine. This is a small quantity (six grams of charas). None of the other drugs was seized from us.

He further added, “The main seizure is from the other accused. I am not connected to others. Even if the offences are non-bailable as argued, based on Rhea’s case, I am entitled to bail. There, Section 27A was invoked, for financing. If material is seized from other accused, that cannot be foisted on me.

He elucidates, “One of the grounds is that there is the seizure of total commercial quantity in the entire case. But that can’t be used against me. According to them, I’m in the position of purchase. But nothing is recovered from me.”

Addressing the accusation that Aryan was involved in international trafficking, his advocate shared, “Now they say that when I was abroad, I have certain conversations in the phone and they want to bust an international drug trafficking racket. In the last one year, I’ve gone to my university. In the entire period, I have not indulged in any drug trafficking.”
