NCB Raids Film Producer Imtiyaz Khatri’s Office, Home in Bandra
Mumbai: A raid is underway at the residence and office of film producer Imtiyaz Khatri in Bandra area here in connection with the cruise drugs party, said Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday, News18 reported.
Khatri’s name had emerged last year after the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The lawyer of the late actor’s former manager Shruti Modi, Ashok Saraogi, had alleged Khatri’s involvement. He claimed that Imtiaz Khatri supplied drugs to Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty.
Ashok Saraogi had then said, “A few days ago, an MLA from Mumbai (Ram Kadam) took the name of Imtiaz Khatri. I also made an enquiry about a Khatri from Bandra. If he is the same Imtiaz Khatri, then he is a big shot. He is well connected in Bollywood.”
The anti-drugs agency had earlier arrested nine people, including Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, after raiding the Goa-bound ship last Saturday. After the raid, the NCB’s Mumbai zonal unit started a crackdown on drug peddlers connected with the arrested persons.
So far, 11 people have been arrested in connection with the seizure of banned drugs from the cruise ship.
