A while ago, it seemed like a resurgence of sorts in case of the NCB working in drug links and the array of names attached to the same from the entertainment industry.
After names like Ajaz Khan and Gaurav Dixit were arrested at that time, the likes of Armaan Kohli was added to the list as well. It has now been over three weeks since that happened and Kohli continues to be in custody. He, along with several others, was charged with multiple sections of the (Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) NDPS Act.
Now, a latest update says that they have applied for the bail and the hearing will take place on September 28. Sources close to the case have revealed that NCB will oppose the bail plea in court.
On similar lines, one would remember how Siddharth Pithani, who was arrested in the Sushant Singh Rajput drugs case was also arrested by the NCB and he recently went on to give a bail plea. However, in his case, the bail has been rejected and he will continue to stay in jail. Previously, NCB officials had revealed that they’ve cracked down on multiple drug peddlers and users in India under Operation Rolling Thunder. More than 9 people have been arrested in these crackdowns and sizeable quantities of illegal drugs have been confiscated as well.
Meanwhile, earlier, NCB Zonal Director (Mumbai) Sameer Wankhede had told ANI, "After the raid, actor Armaan Kohli gave ambiguous answers to questions put up by NCB. He was then taken into custody for questioning at the NCB office".
