The hearing in the bail application of Aryan Khan in the cruise ship drug case on Friday led to some interesting arguments by both sides on the WhatsApp chats of Khan, evidence which the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) claimed clinches the case in their favour..Aryan Khan’s counsel, however maintained that the language used by youngsters belonging to the present generation, particularly while communicating over medium like WhatsApp is different from normal lingo and has been misinterpreted by NCB..When the hearing commenced yesterday, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh said that the panchnama records that Aryan Khan and Arbaaz Merchant said that they were headed for the cruise ship to have a blast.The relevant portion the panchnama reads:“Arbaaz A Merchant admits that he consume (sic) charas with Aryan Khan Shahrukh and they are going inside the Cordelia cruise for blast. On asking Aryan Shahrukh Khan admit (sic) that he also consume charas and the charas was meant for smoke (sic) during the cruise journey.”.However, Senior Advocate Amit Desai towards the final leg of his submissions responded to Singh's contentions on WhatsApp chat.He said that WhatsApp lingo of today’s generation while it could generate suspicion, could mean something totally different and hence cannot be the basis for culpability or in any case denial of bail.“This youth of today they have a different way of expressing themselves, which may seem like torture to us older generation. The language (used by them) may seems like something different then what ought to be in court of law. And those conversations may lead to suspicion, as it should.”.Hence, it has to be read contextually, he emphasised.“These are private moments which are being investigated. You can go ahead and investigate... But this has nothing to with illicit behaviour, Illicit drug trafficking. Context is important when we deal with evidentiary value. The chats are all youthful banter. Some chit chat is happening,” he said.Desai maintained that the chats were no proof that Aryan Khan was involved in drug trafficking much less international drug trafficking.“But what is important to be borne in mind is by no stretch of imagination is this boy involved in any kind of conversation of drug trafficking or international drug trafficking,” he submitted..The bail plea by Khan also said that neither the veracity nor accuracy of the chats have been established and there was noting to suggest that the chats have any relation to the case being investigated by NCB.In this regard, Desai submitted,“The chat messages which they tried to suggest is evidence is an extra-judicial confession which is a weak form of evidence. And the chats have no section 65B certificate.”.The verdict in the bail plea is likely to be pronounced on October 20..Read a live account of the hearing here.
