The owner of Muchhad Paanwala, who was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with a Bollywood drugs case, has been granted bail by a city court on a caste bond of INR 15,000.

On Tuesday morning, January 12, Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Ramkumar Tiwari, one of the owners of Muchhad Paanwala shop after drugs were allegedly found in the warehouse of the shop owner. He was arrested and had a long grilling session.

Named after its founder Panditshree Shyamacharan Tiwari of Tiwaripur, Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, "Muchhad Paanwala" at Kemps Corner, near Malabar Hill, is among the top paan vendors in Mumbai.

Later, on Wednesday, January 13, NCB had summoned Sameer Khan, who is the son-in-law of Maharashtra Minority Affairs Minister and senior NCP leader Nawab Malik in connection with the investigations into the drug mafia-celebrity nexus. According to a report, NCB has found a transaction of INR 20,000 on Google Pay between British national Karan Sajnani and Sameer Khan, which could be linked to drugs procurement. Sameer Khan has been called to verify the same, the report said.

Both the arrest of Ramkumar and summon to Sameer came on the heels of revelations alleging "Muchhad Paanwala" as a customer for narcotics during the interrogation of Sajnani in a drugs case.

Sajnani, residing in the country since over a year was nabbed along with Rahila Furniturewala, a former manager of a Bollywood actress and her sister last week. The name of Mucchad Panwala cropped up in NCB’s investigation, following the arrest of a British national Karan Sejnani and sisters Rahila and Shaista Furntiurewala from Bandra on January 9. About 200 kilograms of marijuana was seized from the three.
