On January 14, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has conducted a raid at Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik's son-in-law's house in Bandra.

This move comes after his arrest by the agency on January 13 in connection with an ongoing probe of seizure of high-quality marijuana from a British national.

The anti-drug agency has also conducted several raids in Mumbai since last night on January 13, intensifying its investigation into drug use after Khan's arrest.

A statement released by the NCB said, "On the basis of specific information, NCB Mumbai effected a seizure of Ganja in Cr 3/2021 from one courier at Bandra West. In the follow-up operation, a huge stash of imported strains of Ganja was recovered from the residence of one Karan Sajnani at Khar. Karan Sajnani, Rahila Furniturewala, Shaista Furniturewala and Ram Kumar Tiwari were arrested under the provisions of the NDPS Act and produced in the court."

During the investigation, the role of Sameer Khan also came to light. After detailed examination ad questioning, he has been arrested. Further, follow up action is underway, said NCB.

Taking it to social media, NCP leader Nawab Malik stated, “Nobody is above the law and it should be applied without any discrimination. Law will take its due course and justice will prevail. I respect and have immense faith in our judiciary.”
