Aryan Khan’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde questions NCB’s detention: He has not been interrogated for two nights
Following the entire drug scandal that has become the talk of the town, because of the involvement of Aryan Khan, his lawyer has now questioned the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for its actions. The starkid was arrested by NCB on October 3 after they raided a cruise ship and claimed that there was a rave party going on. Aryan Khan, along with Arbaaz Merchant, Munmun Dhamecha, and a few others were taken into NCB custody immediately. Now, days after the arrest, Aryan’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has claimed that Aryan has been ‘held hostage’ by the NCB and that he has not even been ‘interrogated for two nights’.
While NCB asked for further custody of the accused in the case, alleging they have found clues to a more sinister plan, the lawyers have called all of it mere speculations, without any concrete proof. Aryan, along with the other accused, was sent to judicial custody for 14 days earlier today. In its application, NCB apparently has sought their further custody till October 11. Aryan Khan’s bail plea will be heard tomorrow at 11 am by the Esplanade Magistrate.
On behalf of his client Aryan, Maneshinde said, ”Officers interrogated me and took me under arrest. I have no connection to any of the organizers. I do not deny my friendship with Arbaaz but I am not connected with his activities. He himself says he came on his own. They have interrogated me on the basis of my chats. Be that as it may, Achit is the only person they have to confront me with, but that can be done anytime. That can be done even after I am granted bail. They have not interrogated me for two nights. Why is custodial interrogation required now?”
Following this, we have to wait till tomorrow to see what the Esplanade Court decides for Aryan. Keep watching this space for all the updates.
