Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], February 21 (ANI): A court in Mumbai on Saturday rejected the bail plea of Sameer Khan, the son-in-law of Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik, in a drugs case.
Khan, who was arrested on January 13 by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), was sent to 14-day judicial custody on January 18. Later, his custody was extended.
Earlier, the prosecutor had said that NCB had found evidence from Sameer regarding some chats indicating that he was planning to mix CBD oil and other chemicals with marijuana.
"We have come to know that there were multiple transactions between Karan and Sameer Khan which was much more than Rs 20,000. He was involved in the commercial activity of drug so we have invoked 27A of the NDPS Act (Punishment for financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders) act against him," the NCB prosecutor said.
In a tweet on January 14, Malik said, "Nobody is above the law and it should be applied without any discrimination. Law will take its due course and justice will prevail. I respect and have immense faith in our judiciary." (ANI)
