It may be noted that the NCB team today carried out raids at the residence of Sameer Khan, Nawab’s son-in-law, in Bandra, who was arrested in connection with the drugs case on Wednesday. Sameer Khan was taken for medical check-up after which he will be produced before a court.
The NCB team also seized his mobile phone, which will be sent to the forensic team for analysis. The NCB officials will also probe Sameer’s bank account to determine if there was any transaction between him and the alleged drug peddlers who are under the scanner of the NCB.
