Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan's legal representative argued in court why thousand other people who were present at the cruise party on that night with Aryan were not arrested. He made the statements in response to NCB's queries during a judicial hearing questioning Aryan's presence in the party, reported ETimes.
According to ETimes, Aryan's lawyer during the judicial hearing said that there was nothing to establish Aryan's connection to people who were at the ship on that night. To this, the drug agency's counsel replies by saying "why was Aryan Khan present on the ship then."
The report further suggests that once the question was out, advocate Taraq Sayed said "1300 people were on the ship. It is not even their case that No. 1 (Aryan Khan) was distributing."
The Narcotics Control Bureau, a central government's agency is being represented in court by Additional Solicitor General, Anil C Singh along with counsel Advait M Sethna while Bollywood's superstar Shah Rukh Khan's son's lawyer is Satish Maneshinde.
Lawyer Maneshinde recently represented Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, Salman Khan in drunk driving and buck poaching case.
Earlier in the day, the drug controller agency said that they demanded Aryan's custody because there was still a lot more to investigate in the case.
A team of NCB sleuths led by zonal director Sameer Wankhede had raided the ship based on a tip-off that a party was scheduled on board. 13 gm of cocaine, 5 gm of MD, 21 gm of charas and 22 pills of ecstasy and Rs 1.33 lakh were seized on board, an official earlier said.
