Justice N.W. Sambre will pass a detailed order in the matter on October 29. Accordingly, the trio of Khan, Merchant and Dhamecha will not step out of jail until the court's orders are received, said a defence lawyer.

Earlier, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday adjourned, till Wednesday, the hearing of the bail application Aryan Khan, who has been arrested along with 19 others in the cruise party case by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

Both Aryan and Arbaaz Merchant were caught before they boarded the ship on October 2, nothing was recovered from Aryan, and the NCB has nothing to show he consumed anything (drugs), he said.

"He was arrested on Ocober 3 and his statement recorded. There was no occasion to arrest my client, short and simple," Rohatgi told a single judge bench of Justice N.W. Sambre.

He pointed out that even though the NCB officers are not police officers, they exercise police powers, and citing a precedent, said that confessions given to them are inadmissible as evidence.
