NCB’s Zonal Director (Mumbai), Sameer Wankhede, told Bombay Times, “I cannot give a long input right now but in the past three days, NCB has launched an operation called Operation Rolling Thunder under which we have intercepted peddlers and suppliers of mephedrone drugs and arrested nine of them so far. After that, a lot of places have been searched and we have seized commercial quantities of drugs from different places. Ajay Singh, alias Ajay Mamu was intercepted and arrested. He was carrying an intermediate quantity of MD (mephedrone). And while investigating him, we came to know about Mr. Kohli. We searched Mr. Kohli’s house and we recovered a small quantity of cocaine. Based on that, we got him to the office and questioned him, and subsequently have put him under arrest. We are producing him in court today.”
Armaan has reportedly been arrested under sections 21(a), 27(a), 28, 29, 30, & 35 of NDPS Act. Ajay has been arrested under sections 22b(a), 27A, 28, 29, 30, & 35. Armaan was taken for a medical examination on Sunday morning. He will also be produced in a special holiday court today.
