The Narcotics Control Bureau on Wednesday arrested Sameer Khan, son-in-law of Maharashtra cabinet minister Nawab Malik, in connection with a drugs case.
Khan was earlier summoned by the NCB for questioning at its office at Ballard Estate in South Mumbai around 10 am. His arrest was recorded in the evening.
Khan was summoned by the agency after it found an alleged online transaction of Rs 20,000 between him and one of the accused in a drugs case, in which British national Karan Sajnani and two others were arrested with 200 kg of drugs last week, sources told PTI.
The agency on Tuesday arrested Ramkumar Tiwari, one of the owners of the famous 'Muchhad Paanwala' shop in Mumbai, which is frequented by celebrities, in connection with the same case.
Sajnani and two others were arrested last week from Khar and Bandra areas in Mumbai.
The drugs included ganja, imported contraband like 'OG Kush' (a strain of cannabis indica), and curated marijuana, some of which had been sourced from the US, reports said.
