Avin’s father said, ”As festival season set in, his son had gone to Mumbai two weeks ago to purchase jewelry. He travels to Dubai, Mumbai, Amritsar and other places to buy jewellery items". His father and other family members claimed that Avin did not take drugs.

The duo were arrested in connection with the bust of a rave party onboard a cruise off the Mumbai coast.
