Actor Ajaz Khan has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with a drugs case.

Actor and former Bigg Boss contestant Ajaz Khan has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau after 8 hours of interrogation in connection with a drug case. The actor was detained by the NCB on Tuesday, an official said, after his name cropped up during interrogation of drug peddler Shadab Batata.

Early on Wednesday morning, the actor was arrested. “NCB has arrested Actor Ajaz Khan, after 8 hours of interrogation in connection with a drug case: Narcotics Control Bureau,” ANI tweeted.

Khan was taken into custody after he visited the NCB office. The probe team also conducted searches at Andheri and Lokhandwala areas along with Khan in connection with the case. Khan landed in Mumbai only on Tuesday.

While speaking to media persons outside the NCB office in south Mumbai, Khan had claimed he was not detained but himself came to meet the officers.
