d souza: Drugs case: No pre-arrest bail for Sam linked to Aryan bribe bid | Hindi Movie News


MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Wednesday rejected a plea for anticipatory bail by Sam D’souza, whose name has come up in connection with the Cordelia cruise drugs case.

“The applicant has preferred the application without approaching sessions court and therefore it is rejected,” said Justice Surendra Tavade. He heard a plea by Sanville D’souza, alias Sam D’souza, who had also urged for three days’ notice before any coercive step is taken against him. D’souza moved court apprehending arrest by the special investigation team set up by the state government to look into the payoff allegations. There was an allegation made by a witness, Prabhakar Sail, that a deal of Rs 18 crore was made for the release of Aryan Khan. Sail had specifically named D’souza as a beneficiary.

D’souza’s advocate argued that he is not arraigned as an accused and there is no FIR against him. “During the course of (sic) whole allegations made by some persons against Sameer Wankhede stating to grant relief he had taken money,” he said. But Justice Tavade interrupted him, saying he won’t hear the petition. “I’m not going to entertain this. You have a forum. Don’t waste my time,” he added.

A vacation bench of Justice S P Tavade heard D’Souza’s plea on late Wednesday night. Rejecting it, the judge noted that the applicant should have first approached the sessions court. D’Souza claimed in the plea that Kiran Gosavi, a witness of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the case, had taken Rs 50 lakh from Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani to get Aryan released. The amount was returned after the NCB arrested the 23-year-old in the case on October 3, the application said.
