Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli, who was being questioned by sleuths of Narcotics Control Bureau, was arrested on Sunday morning after banned drugs were allegedly recovered from his Mumbai house, sources said.
An NCB team raided Kohli’s house in the evening on Saturday and later took him to the agency’s office in south Mumbai as some narcotics were found at his house, said an official. Now, he has been officially arrested.
NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede and others were quizzing him, he added. Small quantity of cocaine was recovered from his residence. Kohli’s house was raided after NCB nabbed a history sheeter peddler on August 28, who gave them info on ‘A Kohli’ being a client.
Sources say the alleged peddler was supplying drugs to other Bollywood personalities also.
NCB Mumbai is probing the route and linkages used to bring the seized cocaine to Mumbai and the involvement of other traffickers. Further investigation is under way.
