Aryan Khan has a role in illicit procurement and distribution of contraband: NCB

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has handed over copies of their reply to the lawyers concerned on bail applications of Aryan Khan and others in connection with drug seizure on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. The NCB has opposed bail for each accused.
NCB in its reply has mentioned that the materials collected during the investigation have primarily revealed that Aryan Khan has a role insofar as illicit procurement and distribution of contraband is concerned. In its reply, the NCB mention, it is prima facie revealed Aryan Khan used to procure contraband from Arbaaz Merchantt and the sources connected to Arbaaz Merchant, from whose conscious possession (shoes) 6 grams of Charas was recovered. Aryan and Arbaaz have been associated in moving/close collaboration with each other, which is sufficient to attract offences, more particularly section 29 under the NDPS act.
NCB further mentioned that there is material on record to show that Aryan was in touch with some persons abroad who appear to be a part of an international drug network for illicit procurement of drugs.
Earlier today, the NCB had told Special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) court that it would file a reply on the bail plea of Aryan Khan and others.
The court will resume the hearing at 2:45 PM today and the Additional Solicitor General Anil C Singh is likely to appear in the court.
A total of 20 people, including two Nigerian nationals, have been arrested so far in the case related to the seizure of drugs following a raid at a party on the a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2.
