An India Today report also claims that Ajaz's name surfaced in the NCB investigation after drug peddler Shadab Batata's arrest. It must be noted that this is not the first time the actor’s name has cropped up in a drug case. Back in 2018, Ajaz Khan was arrested by the Navi Mumbai Police for allegedly possessing banned drugs.
In April 2020, the controversial actor quoted trouble again after he allegedly uploaded an objectionable post on Facebook. He had been summoned to Khar police station and got bail a few days later. In 2019 as well, he was arrested for allegedly having caused enmity among communities with his social media video.
