NCB Arrests Celebrity Hairstylist Suraj Godambe With Cocaine
Mumbai: Continuing its crackdown on the Bollywood-Drug nexus, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested celebrity hairstylist Suraj Godambe with cocaine on Thursday. Godambe has been associated with blockbuster films in recent years.
NCB officials said that 16 cocaine ampules (each ampule contains around 11 grams cocaine) were found from his possession and it fell neither under the category of consumption quantity nor commercial quantity. It is an intermediary quantity, Hindustan Times (HT) reported.
The operation was carried out under the supervision of NCB joint director Sameer Wankhede, the report added.
Godambe was arrested along with a drug peddler. Both have been booked under relevant sections of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act and will be produced in the court on Thursday, Wankhede was quoted as saying.
However, their case is not linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
While there are no charges levelled against Godambe as yet, NCB officials are checking if he was involved in providing drugs to any celebrity or any other person.
