A special court in Mumbai on Wednesday refused to grant bail to Aryan and two others in connection with the seizure of banned drugs. In his bail application, Aryan had stated that he had been “falsely implicated in the present crime”.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) stated in its reply that, according to the evidence, Aryan had played a role in the procurement and distribution of illegal drugs. It also stated that Aryan is in touch with individuals who are a part of an international drug network.
In addition to this, the NCB was quoted as saying, “Police has found a drug-related WhatsApp chats that are allegedly between Aryan Khan and a debut actor.”
