Mumbai: The Bombay High Court, in its order following the granting of bail to Aryan Khan in the drugs case, noted that there was “hardly any positive evidence” to convince the court that all the accused had agreed to act unlawfully with a common intention. It said that nothing objectionable had been found in WhatsApp chats on Aryan Khan’s phone.
“After having gone through the Whatsapp chats extracted from (Aryan Khan’s) phone, nothing objectionable could be noticed to suggest that – he and Arbaaz – or all three applicants along with other accused persons in agreement have meeting of minds and have hatched conspiracy committing the offence in question,” the order stated.
In its 14-page order, the court further noted that there was no dispute regarding the fact that Aryan Khan was not found in possession of any objectionable substance. Also, the “quantity of drugs which was seized from the possession of (Arbaaz and Munmun), if independently considered, is a small quantity.
Aryan Khan and others were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3 on board a cruise ship that was headed from Mumbai to Goa. He stayed in jail for 25 days before getting bail.
