MUMBAI: In ongoing probes into a drug bust involving a British national, the NCB on Wednesday arrested Sameer Khan, son-in-law of NCP spokesperson and Maharashtra’s minority affairs and skill development minister Nawab Malik.
NCB officials said Khan was a drug abuser and had also invested amounts running into lakhs in arrested British national Karan Sajani’s drug trafficking business. NCB said it has found digital evidence linking the duo. Khan has been booked under NDPS Act for financing, illicit traffic and harbouring offenders, which attracts a punishment of 10-20 years rigorous imprisonment and up to Rs 2 lakh fine. The arrest came after an eight-hour interrogation. Khan, a resident of Bandra west, runs a salon in the same suburb and dabbles in sales of gym equipment and real estate.
BJP member Kirit Somiaya demanded that Malik be dropped from the state cabinet. NCB arrested Sajnani on January 9 after they found him involved in smuggling ganja from the US through courier. NCB has also carried out raids in Rampur in Uttar Pradesh where Sajnani had set up a trafficking network, sources said. “Khan’s interrogation is on to ascertain more details,” an official said.
