A Mumbai Special NDPS Court on Thursday has granted a conditional bail of Rs 50,000 to Kshitij Ravi Prasad -- a former associate of Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar -- two months after his arrest, his lawyer said here.
Prasad was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on September 26 in connection to the drugs-probe, which surfaced during Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case investigation.
According to advocate Satish Maneshinde, who represents Prasad, the Special NDPS Court Judge G. B. Gurao has ordered the release of his client on furnishing a provisional cash bail of Rs 50,000 plus one or two sureties, to be furnished within a month.
Prasad will be required to report to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office every Monday for an hour for the next six months, deposit his passport, not travel abroad without prior permission of the court, share his itinerary for any domestic travel, attend all court proceedings, refrain from tampering with any evidence or witnesses, etc., among the conditions imposed by the Special Court.
Reportedly, though, Prasad has been granted bail, he will not be walking out of the jail today as he has also been implicated in another case which is pending for its next hearing on December 3.
A few days back, comedian Bharti Singh and her husband, Harsh Limbachiyaa were also granted bail after the NCB team conducted a raid at their Mumbai residence and arrested the couple as they reportedly confessed to purchasing and consuming drugs.
