The special court formed under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act on Saturday rejected the anticipatory bail applications of Deepesh Sharma and Rakesh Sharma, the two disc jockeys who were among the 92 persons detained at a sundown party in Juhu's Oakwood Hotel on May 20.

But the court allowed the duo a week's time to move the Bombay high court for relief. Both DJs, among the 44 persons who tested positive for consumption of narcotic substances, had filed for anticipatory bail soon after their forensic reports were submitted.

The court rejected the anticipatory bail applications of the two DJs after the prosecution said that they have been booked for conspiracy of organising a party where narcotics substances were distributed and consumed. However, the court has stayed its own order for a week, giving the duo time to move the high court for relief.

Of the 44, 27 tested positive for cannabis, one tested positive for MDMA and 16 for both.
