Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case: NCB arrests drug peddler Harish Khan in a raid

Khan was detained on Tuesday, according to the official, after an NCB team led by zonal director Sameer Wankhede conducted raids in suburban Andheri, Lokhandwala, and Bandra.


On June 14, 2020, Sushant Singh Rajput died. The matter has been investigated by the CBI, NCB, and ED since his death and it is still going on.  Harish Khan, a drug trader in Bandra, was recently detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with a drugs case linked to the late Bollywood superstar.

An NCB official claimed on Wednesday that drug seller Harish Khan had been arrested because of his claimed ties to gangster and drug peddler Parvez Khan.  Parvez Khan alias Chinku Pathan is an associate of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
