Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3 by the NCB after a rave party on cruise ship Cordelia, on its way from Mumbai to Goa, was busted.

“The hearing would be on Tuesday,” Aryan Khan’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde told reporters in Mumbai. Maneshinde mentioned the plea before a single bench of Justice N W Sambre, seeking an urgent hearing on Friday. However, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, who appeared on behalf of NCB, sought time.

A total of 20 persons have been arrested so far. All the accused has been booked under the stringent Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS).

Aryan Khan’s appeal for bail has been rejected by the Esplanade Magistrate Court and the Special NDPS Court.
