Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli arrested in drugs case after NCB raid

Daijiworld Media Network - Mumbai

Mumbai, Aug 29: Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli was on Sunday August 29 arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after contraband drugs were allegedly recovered during a raid on his residence.

NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhade told the media that a small quantity of cocaine was seized from Kohli's residence, adding that the case has "international linkages" as the cocaine seized was of South American origin.

"The NCB is probing the route and linkages used to bring the seized cocaine to Mumbai and the involvement of other traffickers," Wankhede said.


The NCB had raided Kohli's home late last evening and then took him to its office after recovering the banned narcotics.

Kohli's name emerged during the interrogation of a peddler Ajay Raju Singh who was arrested in Worli on Saturday morning, as part of the NCB's all-out war against the drugs mafia.

A history-sheeter with a previous case lodged against him by the Anti Narcotics Cell of Mumbai Police, the NCB nabbed Ajay Singh Saturday near the Haji Ali Mausoleum and recovered 25 gms of Mephedrone from him.

Following this, Wankhede said that a first information report has been lodged against both Singh and Kolhi, under various sections of the NDPS Act, and further investigations are underway.
