Recently, Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades’ brother Agisialos Demetriades was arrested after the agency seized Hashish and Alprazolam tablets from him. He has been arrested in the same case as Rhea Chakraborty.
Now, the latest ANI report stated that the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Court has sent accused - Agisilaos Demetriades to judicial custody in the drugs case linked to Sushant Singh Rajput's death case.
The agency reportedly made its 23rd arrest as part of its investigation on Monday.
The report also mentioned that according to the NCB officials Demetriades is an African and a close relative of a Bollywood celebrity.
"Demetriades has been arrested from a resort in Lonavala area of Mumbai. Drugs have been recovered from his possession. Alprazolam, a tablet that is banned in India was recovered during a raid at his home," an official told ANI.
The official further added that Demetriades was part of an active and "immensely large drug syndicate and supplied narcotics to the same peddlers that were selling drugs to actress Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik Chakraborty, Anuj Keshwand Dipesh Sawant."
