The bail hearing of Aryan Khan is still underway at Esplanade Magistrate court today, on Friday. He was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau on October 3 due to his alleged involvement in the drug case after they conducted a raid at a supposedly rave party that happened on the cruise ship. Lawyer Satish Maneshinde is fighting Aryan’s drug case in court where he states how Aryan statement recorded under section 37 of the NDPS Act cannot Alone be used to deny him bail. Moreover, he also appeal​led before the court that the evidence should be based on merits and not on technicalities.

Furthermore, Maneshinde even narrated the star kid’s statement where it is stated that he went on an invitation and refused to have drugs in possession. According to a tweet by Live Law, Maneshinde reads his bail plea which read, “I am a 23-year-old with no prior antecedents. I happen to be from Bollywood. I went on an invitation, refused when asked if I have drugs. They were honest not to accuse me of anything else. Data from my mobile has been retrieved and sent for forensics

Search and seizure cannot be cited just to lock me up in the jail. The normal tendency of the court is to grant bail. There is an accusation, there is no material. I was abroad when those chats happen,” he added. Maneshinde even argues that Khan was not accused of consumption of narcotics which is said to be punishable under section 27. Henceforth, the embargo of section 37 of  NDPS will not apply to Khan, as reported by Live Law.
