Actor and former 'Bigg Boss' contestant Ajaz Khan's bail application has been rejected by the Mumbai Esplanade Court on Tuesday, reported ANI.

The actor was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials in an alleged drug case in March.

"4.5 grams of Alprozol tablets were recovered during his house search but he has been mainly arrested for his association with Batata Gang," NCB officials had said at the time of his arrest.

Khan's name had cropped up during the interrogation of arrested drug peddler Shadab Batata. Accordingly, Khan was questioned by the NCB 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 the court.

In April, the actor had tested positive for coronavirus.

Ajaz is best known for his stint in the 'Bigg Boss' house in season 7 as a wild card entry and he later also appeared as a guest in 'Bigg Boss 8'.

He has been a part of various shows like 'Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka', 'Karam Apna Apna', 'Diya Aur Baati Hum', and 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' among others.
