According to the latest news in the drug case investigated by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), the agency has made another arrest. Dharma Productions-associated Kshitij Ravi Prasad who was quested by NCB earlier this week for two days, has been arrested.

Taking a dig at the filmmaker, he wrote on Twitter, "Dharma Productions ED Kshitij Ravi Prasad arrested His arrest will yield some big leads in busting the Bollywood Drug Cartel Including @karanjohar." Sirsa further went on to question, "What remains to be seen is how many top Bollywood stars come forward to expose #UdtaBollywood."

He will be questioned about the 2019 drug party." However, the claims have not been confirmed by the NCB or the filmmaker.
