Her father and other family members said Avin did not take drugs.
“While in Mumbai, Avin was accompanied by some of his friends to attend a separate bachelorette party on the cruise ship. When he learned that Aryan was in the ship, he was waiting to take a selfie with Aryan. At that point, the NCB team suddenly raided. Avin and Manish got caught in a mess, ”his father said.
He also said that his son being taken without any basis, he would take legal action.
