Aryan Khan Case Update
Meanwhile, the NCB has sent all the six male accused, including Aryan, to Arthur Road Jail and both the female accused to Byculla Jail. In fact, the court yesterday remanded all the accused in judicial custody for 14 days. The hearing, however, lasted until late at night and did not enter the jail after 6 p.m. As a result, 8 accused including Aryan were kept in the lockup of NCB.
At the same time, in today’s case, both the parties are arguing, citing different cases, whether the bail application should be heard in this court or not. Meanwhile, Aryan’s lawyer Satish Manshinde said that if there was a dispute, the judge should have referred the matter to the high court, but unfortunately that did not happen.
Aryan Khan Gets Bail?
Manshinde has argued that in low-volume drug cases, the High Court grants bail, then my client has found nothing. He also said, why is the central government in such a hurry in this matter? Replying to him, ASG Anil Singh said that you cannot say that.
Aryan’s lawyers have filed two petitions
Aryan Khan’s lawyer Satish Manshinde has filed two bail applications in the court. One of them is a petition for interim bail so that Aryan can get immediate bail and the other is for regular bail so that he can remain on bail till the matter is investigated. The NCB, on the other hand, has already opposed regular bail under the NDPC Act. Earlier, the court had on Thursday ordered all the eight accused, including Aryan, to be remanded in judicial custody after a 24-hour hearing.
In fact, he has no access to the jail after 6pm, so he had to spend the whole night in the NCB lockup. In court, NCB counsel Satish Manshinde said the accused was subjected to covid test before being sent to jail and Aryan’s corona test had not been conducted yet. It is believed that if bail is denied by the court today, Aryan will first undergo a cowardly test and then be sent to Taloja Jail in Navi Mumbai.
