The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday nabbed three persons, including celebrity manager Rahila Furniturewala and British national Karan Sajnani, in connection with the probe in drugs case linked to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput last year, an official said

The official of the apex drug law enforcement agency informed that the arrests were made after establishment of the alleged role of the trio in the case

The third arrested accused is Jagtap Singh Anand, brother of co-accused Karamjeet Singh Anand, an alleged drugs supplier who was nabbed in September last year, he said.

The NCB had arrested Furniturewala, Sajnani along with one more person in a separate case in January and seized contraband after raiding premises linked to them in suburban Bandra and Khar, the agency had said.

The seized contrabands, weighing approximately 200 kg, included imported strains of ganja like OG Kush and curated marijuana, it had said.

The contrabands were sourced from the USA besides local areas, the central agency had said.

After their interrogation, the NCB had arrested a co-owner of the famous 'Mucchad Paanwala' shop in south Mumbai.

Earlier this week, the NCB had arrested Rajputs friend, assistant film director Rishikesh Pawar, in the drugs case registered after the 34-year-old actor's death in June last year.

During further investigation, the alleged involvement of Furniturewala, Sajnani and Jagtap Anand in the drugs case came to light, the NCB official said, adding a probe was underway.

The CBI is probing Rajput's death, while the NCB is investigating the drugs angle related to the case.

The NCB is also probing the alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus and had conducted multiple raids over the last few months. The central anti-drugs agency had arrested a number of drug peddlers.
