Opposing bail in the affidavit, the NCB described Riya and Shovik as active members of the drug syndicate.
The bail application of Riya Chakraborty and her brother Shovik Chakraborty was heard in the Bombay High Court on Tuesday for about an hour. Meanwhile, RIA lawyer Satish Manshinde has opposed the affidavit filed by the NCB as an active member of Riya and Shovik Drugs Syndicate and has imposed Section 277A of the NDPS Act on them. At the same time, there is no evidence that drug transactions have taken place.
Appearing as Riya, Mansinde said that the drugs weighed 25 grams which was for Sushant’s use. Such a small amount cannot be used commercially. He was not doing this to make a profit. ‘
Can be charged under section 29
Another defense consultant said, “It is alleged that we have made it easier for Sushant to use drugs. In such a situation, we may be charged more under Section 29, as there is not only not acceptable, there is no trade.” Didn’t mention. ‘
Finishing work is required for any crime
Rear attorneys also said that any work must be finished in order to be described as a crime. If I text a drug dealer on my phone, send me 10 grams of hash and the dealer replies that he is sending. Can the crime be proved on the basis of these two messages? It is also possible that the delivery man swallowed or stole it or gave it to someone else. Without proof of this thing that thing has been delivered correctly, it cannot be considered on the basis of messages alone.
Sushant was sentenced to one year
During the hearing, Satish Mansinde said, “If Sushant had survived today, he would have been punished under Section 227 for drug use, which carries a maximum sentence of six months to one year in prison.” Clearly, when the main beneficiary was sentenced to only six months to one year imprisonment, how could Section 227A be issued against Riya and Shovik, which was a provision of 10 to 20 years imprisonment.
After a nearly hour-long hearing in the Bombay High Court on Tuesday, the court reserved judgment on both bail. Which may come up at the next hearing.
