NCB arrests drug peddler, Harish Khan, to investigate his role in drug case linked to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has imprisoned drug peddler Haris Khan over his plausible connections with gangster and drug peddler Parvez Khan alias Chinku Pathan, an associate of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, an NCB official said on Wednesday. The NCB will also investigate Khan’s role in a drug case linked to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death last year, he said.

Khan was arrested on Tuesday after an NCB team, guide by its zonal director Sameer Wankhede, performed raids at various locations in suburban Andheri, Lokhandwala, and Bandra, the official said.

“As of now, the NCB has arrested Khan in connection with the Chinku Pathan drugs case, but his role in the drug case linked to Rajput’s death will also be investigated,” the official said.

The anti-drugs agency last week arrested Rajput’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani from Hyderabad in the drug case linked to the actor’s death.

The NCB on Sunday also questioned Rajput’s two former domestic helpers Neeraj and Keshav in relation with the case.

Rajput was found hanging at his home in Bandra in June last year.

The NCB had arrested Pathan, a henchman Dawood Ibrahim and a relative of late mafia don Karim Lala, in January this year from neighbouring Navi Mumbai after busting a drug trafficking racket.
