Mumbai Special NDPS court on Thursday reserved the order for October 20 on the bail application of Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha.
Earlier in the day, in his final submission to special NDPS court, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh argued that when considering a case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, the scheme and the object of the act must be taken into consideration.
"When we are considering a case under an NDPS act, the scheme and the object of the act must be taken into consideration...because it's affecting the nation. From time to time straight action is taken. NCB is working day and night and dealing with drugs in serious manners," said the ASG.
"My four to five officers were beaten a few days back not in this case but another case, so I am saying it is affecting the society and college students in particular. The younger generation is the future of the country. It's the land of Mamata Gandhi, we should stop the circulation of the drug. We are looking into the chain, transition. We are in the primary stage and it's a case of conspiracy we are investigating," he added.
On Wednesday, NCB in its reply filed in a special court said that its investigation has revealed Aryan Khan's role in illicit procurement and distribution of contraband.
The NCB further said that Aryan Khan used to procure drugs from Arbaz Khan.
The special Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court is hearing a plea for bail to Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan arrested from a cruise off Mumbai during a raid by the agency, in which banned narcotics were seized.
A total of 20 people, including two Nigerian nationals, have been arrested so far in the case related to the seizure of drugs following a raid at a party on the Cordelia cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2.
