No evidence of a conspiracy between the son of megastar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha to commit drug-related offences, said the Bombay High Court, on Saturday, November 20.
The Court said that nothing objectionable was found in WhatsApp conversations between them.
"There is hardly any positive evidence on record to convince this Court that all the accused persons with common intention agreed to commit an unlawful act," the order read.
“Merely because Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha were travelling in the same cruise, that by itself cannot be a foundation for the charge of conspiracy against them,” it further added.
The High Court order opined that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) should not rely on the alleged confessional statements recorded by the investigating officer as they were not binding and solid to make any substantial claim.
