Former AG Mukul Rohtagi said that detailed report will be released tomorrow. And hopefully, all the accused will be out of jail by Saturday. Justice Sambre heard the arguments today from Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh who represents the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
The hearing started at 3pm after being delayed yesterday. During the hearing, Singh said that Arbaz Merchant who is also accused in the case is a childhood friend of Aryan. And even if the Aryan Khan did not consume drugs, he was part of the conspiracy. Following this, Aryan Khan shall also be treated under the same law.
Further talking about testing, he said that the accusations made are based on the possession of drugs. And at the time of the arrest, Accused No 1 (Aryan Khan) was conscious and in possession of the drugs. He also that if the WhatsApp chats are to be relied upon, then Aryan Khan did make an attempt to procure drugs of the commercial quantity. However, it cannot be said if the drugs were for personal consumption.
