Accused Arbaz Merchant’s lawyer Amit Desai tells Bombay High Court, “There was medical test to ascertain the consumption. We were arrested for an offence, under Section 27 of NDPS Act, which didn’t take place.”

Desai continues, “The statement in the chats that they were going on cruise to have a blast was actually about consumption only, at maximum. As (Mukul) Rohatgi pointed out that this is a case of aborting. There was a plan which didn’t happen.”

Senior counsel Amit Desai, arguing for bail of Arbaz Merchant in drugs-on-cruise, tells Bombay HC, “There was no mention of allegation of “use” (of drugs) in the arrest memo. It talks about personal consumption only so the arrest memo itself demolishes the conspiracy thing.”
