Aryan had to spend Sunday night in the NCB office itself. Sources said that even late night, Aryan, and Arbaaz were interrogated by NCB officials after sitting face to face.
NCB may oppose Aryan’s bail
According to sources, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has said that it will not seek Aryan’s custody in the Cordelia Cruises drugs case. According to reports, when Aryan Khan will be sent to judicial custody on Monday, his lawyers will apply for bail.
It is believed that NCB may demand to keep Aryan in judicial custody till the initial investigation of the case. However, it is doubtful whether the court will accept it.
Presentation of 5 other accused for custody Today

On Sunday, while seeking the custody of the three, including Aryan, the NCB said that the accused were related to the drug nexus, public prosecutor Advaita Setna had said that WhatsApp chats have been found from the accused, whose investigation is going on. Apart from this, banned drugs have also been found from the accused. Its sources and links need to be checked. Setna said that the WhatsApp chat shows that the accused are linked to drug consumption and drug addiction. Thereafter, citing State vs Anil Sharma case, Setna sought Aryan’s custody in the bailable section.
Aryan’s lawyer said – he did not find any drugs on behalf of Aryan, advocate Satish Manshinde had argued that his client’s case is bailable. He would have applied for bail, but it could not happen as it was a Sunday. His client was called by the organizers. He didn’t even have a cruise ticket. Nothing was found with them. Apart from this, their mobile phones have also been checked. Couldn’t find anything in that either. Manshinde argued – NCB has also said that nothing was recovered from Aryan.
