Khatri's name cropped up during the interrogation of the accused persons, who were earlier arrested in the Mumbai drug bust case.

The Narcotics Control Bureau has again summoned film producer Imtiyaz Khatri, making it his third visit to the NCB office in Mumbai on Thursday. Khatri has been under the agency’s radar after the Mumbai zonal unit conducted searches at the residence and office in Bandra last week in connection with the seizure of drugs from a cruise ship.

Khatri’s name cropped up during the interrogation of the accused persons, who were earlier arrested in the drugs seizure case, the official said, adding that the NCB has been cracking down on the drug peddlers and suppliers in the metropolis.
