The Narcotics Control Bureau arrested a UK national, a former manager of an actor and her sister in a case of smuggling of 200 kg. of high-quality ganja into the country. The UK national is Karan Sajnani while the actor’s ex-manager is Rahila Furniturewala. Rahila’s sister, Shaista, was also arrested. They were all booked under sections 27 and 27A of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. The arrests followed the interception of a parcel couriered to Bandra in Bombay. The NCB then searched Karan’s flat at Khar and seized 200 kg. of ganja. His interrogation led the team to Rahila’s house from where it seized a small quantity of weed. The NCB reportedly found ganja at the flat of Shaista.
The NCB had swung into action to probe the drugs angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The three arrests are also part of the same investigation.
