On Friday (October 8), a Mumbai court rejected the bail petition of Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha. Khan was arrested after a Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) team raided a rave party onboard a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai.
As per reports, Khan was brought to the Arthur Road jail on Friday and the hearing of his bail application began at around 12:30 pm at the Esplanade Magistrate Court. In his defence, Khan’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde told the Court that it has the power to set his client free. “These are local boys. Kindly grant bail,” he had requested. However, the Court turned down his request.
