As reported by ETimes, NDPS judge VV Patil discarded his counsel’s submission of there being no dr*g possession by Aryan Khan and thus no case against him. He said, “Though no contraband is found in possession of accused no 1 (Khan), six grams of charas was found in possession of accused no 2 (Arbaaz Merchant) of which (Khan) was having knowledge, and thus it can be said it was in conscious possession of both accused.”
