Earlier, before the arrest, NCB has recovered MD drugs, charas, and other drugs in the raid of Gaurav’s house. Gaurav was arrested on the ground of inquiry.
Significantly, in the drug case, NCB had arrested actor Ejaz Khan in March. Actor Ejaz Khan’s name surfaced after the arrest of drug peddler Shadab Batata in the drugs case. Ejaz Khan is accused of being a part of the Batata gang.
Before this in April, the investigative agency collected a large number of prohibited drugs at Gaurav’s house situated in Lokhandwala. While coming to his house, as soon as the actor and his friend sighted the police, they disappeared away. Since then, Police and NCB were on the lookout for him.
The NCB had earlier arrested Shadab Batata, son of Mumbai’s biggest drug supplier Farooq Batata, and recovered drugs worth about Rs 2 crore. Shadab Batata is accused of supplying drugs to Bollywood celebrities in Mumbai. Farooq used to vend potatoes in his early life. At that time he came in contact with some people of the underworld and today he is the biggest drug supplier in Mumbai. Now his two sons have claimed the entire job of this drug world.
