Meanwhile, NCB’s special prosecutor Advait Sethna presented Aryan, Arbaaz, and Munmun before Additional Magistrate RK Rajebhosale, requesting a two-day remand to help with the investigation.
The NCB has used sections 8(c) of the NDPS Act, as well as sections 20b, 35, and 27, to investigate Aryan Khan and the other suspects, according to Sethna.
The party was allegedly planned using social media, with ticket prices ranging from Rs 75,000 per person.
About Khan, Sethna informed the judge that he was arrested in connection with the discovery of 13 grams of cocaine, 5 grams of MD (mephedrone), 21 kilos of charas, 22 tablets of MDMA (ecstasy), and Rs 1,33,000 at the Mumbai International Cruise Terminal.
To avoid discovery, the NCB sleuths posed as ordinary passengers on the cruise, and they quickly discovered that several of their fellow passengers were using narcotics.
Munmun admitted to receiving narcotics near the international airport, close to a five-star hotel, during the inquiry.
Who is Munmun Dhamecha?
Munmun works as a fashion model. She comes from a business family based in Madhya Pradesh, according to reports.
On Instagram, she has over 11 thousand followers. If you go through her Instagram profile, you will get to see her photos with a lot of Bollywood celebs.
By uploading reels and images from her modeling assignments, the 39-year-old model keeps her followers engaged.
Her parents are both deceased, and her brother, Prince Dhamecha, works in Delhi. She relocated to Bhopal after Sagar and then to Delhi for a few years to live with her brother.

The NCB is currently investigating all known event organizers, according to an official with the anti-drug organization.
According to an NCB, officials from the cruise line and the event management business are expected to be summoned in connection with the seizure of banned substances aboard the ship.
The central agency will now investigate if any of the organizers were aware of the narcotics carried on board and taken throughout the three-day Arabian Sea trip.
The agency is currently investigating three more directors of the event management firm, according to the official.
On Sunday, the cruise line issued a statement claiming that it had no involvement with the incident.
