Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli was being questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after banned drugs were allegedly recovered from his house in Mumbai, sources in the central agency 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 has levelled serious charges against the actor which doesn’t only include consumption of anti-narcotics products but also procurement, possession, sale purchase transport and illicit trafficking and harbouring offenders under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
While NCB officers claim that prima facie they have found Kohli’s links with peddlers, including some foreign nationals, sources said that the actor can seek bail as the quantity of cocaine seized from him is 1.2gm, which falls under the ‘personal consumption’ category. If the defence proves that the quantity seized is for consumption only, the court may relieve Kohli and ask him to undergo a three-month rehabilitation programme.
