Bollywood actor and former "Bigg Boss" contestant Ajaz Khan has tested positive for Covid-19, one week after he was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with a drugs case, an official said on Monday.

The 41-year-old actor underwent a medical examination on Sunday following which his report came out positive for the viral infection, the NCB official said, adding that the actor will be shifted to a hospital.

Officials involved in the probe against Khan will also undergo test for Covid-19, he added.

Last Tuesday, Khan was initially detained by the NCB's Mumbai zonal unit after he landed at the city airport from Rajasthan.

His name had cropped up during the interrogation of arrested drug peddler Shadab Batata, the official said.

Accordingly, Khan was questioned by the NCB at its office in south Mumbai and his statement was recorded.

After examining his role in the crime, he was placed under arrest and later remanded in the NCB's custody by a local court, the official said.
