In the Aryan Khan drug case, One of the lawyers from Aryan’s Amit Desai pointed out ‘how according to them 6 gms were recovered from Arbaaz and 5 gms from Munmun. Despite this, the remand application mentions 21 gms of charas.’ “There is no seizure panchnama of the phones. “They argued phones were voluntarily handed over. But with personal devices, it is important to have a memo for veracity”, he argues.
Furthermore, another lawyer Mukul Rohatgi says that seeing ‘the remand application was misleading as if to make one feel that the large quantities mentioned in that were recovered from Aryan Khan’. Desai then argues that it is a direct infringement of constitutional guarantees and mentions that bail must be granted.
