NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede was quoted by ETimes TV as saying, "As of now we haven't found anything in the initial stage but we are not ruling out that angle at all."
Earlier, Sameer Wankhede had told, "We have found his involvement in the Shadab Batata case and he is definitely facing some serious charges. His statement is being recorded at present." It is being said that two of his properties have also been raided by the NCB.
Apparently, NCB had recently raided various places like Lokhandwala, Versova and Mira Road, and during the raids, Rs 2 crore worth quantities of MDMA drug was recovered by the officials.
It has to be recalled that last year in April, Ajaz was arrested for his objectionable remarks during a Facebook live session. In 2019, he was sent to 14-day judicial custody after he was arrested by the cyber wing of Mumbai Police for allegedly posting videos promoting communal hatred. In 2018, the ex-Bigg Boss contestant was arrested by the Navi Mumbai Police for the alleged possession of banned drugs.
