A special Mumbai court rejected the bail pleas filed by Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchantt, and Munmun Dhamecha, in connection to the Mumbai cruise case.

As per a report by ANI, Aryan has moved an application in the Bombay High Court against the court order.

Aryan, Arbaaz, and Munmun, and others were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau after the agency raided a luxury cruise off the coast of Mumbai.

As per a report by ANI, the NCB has said that it has submitted the WhatsApp chats of Aryan Khan in court. "The police have found drug- related WhatsApp chats that are allegedly between Aryan Khan and a debut actress", ANI quoted the agency as saying.

Aryan has been in Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail since 8 October. Before that, he was in the custody of the NCB.


During the court hearing last week, the NCB had claimed that Aryan is a 'regular consumer of drugs'. The agency further stated that Aryan's WhatsApp chats reveal his links to an international cartel.

On the other hand, Aryan's lawyers argued that neither did NCB find any drugs on their client nor is there evidence to suggest that he was about to use banned substances.
