The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested actor and former Bigg Boss contestant Ajaz Khan today, a day after he was detained for questioning over restricted drugs discovered at his Mumbai home. He was intercepted at the Mumbai airport yesterday after arriving from Rajasthan. During searches in the city’s Andheri and Lokhandwala districts, the agency discovered alprazolam tablets from his home, according to the agency.
According to the NCB, Ajaz Khan is a member of the syndicate of drug dealer Shadab Farooque Shaikh alias Shadab Batata. Last Thursday, Shaikh was apprehended, and over 2 kilograms of the illegal mephedrone drug were discovered on Ajaz Khan.

Mr Batata’s revelations led the agency to Mr Khan, who was interrogated at the NCB’s Mumbai office. Mr Khan said to reporters outside the office that he was not detained and that he had gone to meet the officers voluntarily. Ajaz concentrated on his innocence this morning.
“Neither was anything found from my home nor from the airport,” while talking to the media at a conference today, Mr Khan said. He was being taken to somewhere by officials.
Media was repeatedly asking about the pills that were found in their house, he replied and said, “Nothing. Ask them where they got it…what they got was four sleeping pills. My wife had miscarried and was in depression. She was taking those pills.” Well, we can’t comment on who is lying and who is speaking the truth.
The NCB has been tightening the screws on the suspected Bollywood-narcotics syndicate in recent months, conducting raids, interrogations, and arrests in this regard. The inquiries are related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput last year.
During this process, the NCB questioned a number of industry A-listers, including Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, Shraddha Kapoor, and Sara Ali Khan. And now, Ajaz Khan.
In recent months, the department has also detained a number of foreign nationals for drug possession. According to ANI, it intercepted a Nigerian national on Monday and recovered 200 grams of Mephedrone from the Navi Mumbai district. According to ANI, six Sri Lankan nationals were arrested on a boat in Indian waters with 300 kilogrammes of heroin and a significant amount of arms and ammunition on the same day in Chennai.
The industry and its people like Ajaz should understand that they are role-model of the young generation of the country. In order to look “cool” like their role models, the younger generation starts getting involved in these illegal actions.
