Mumbai: The Mumbai Zonal Unit of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) conducted a raid at Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli's residence on Saturday evening. After the search operation under 'Operation Rolling Thunder' was initiated as a part of an intensive crackdown to wipe out MD, Kohli was taken to the NCB office for investigation after he was issued summons.

In a crackdown on drug peddlers and suppliers, the NCB had raided around 15-16 locations in the city, arresting at least seven peddlers. During one such raid on Saturday morning, police learnt that the arrested peddler supplied contraband to film personalities, including Kohli. Acting on this tip off, the team from NCB conducted searches at Kohli's Juhu residence.

While the NCB sources did not divulge if any contraband was found during searches. "After issuing summons to Armaan Kohli to join the investigation. He is being taken to NCB office," NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede told the FPJ. He further added, "It is a primary stage to comment and he is being taken to the office for further investigation."

This is not the first time Kohli came under police's scanner as in 2018. He was arrested by the Excise Department for holding alcohol bottles at home, more than the permitted number. He was also booked by the police for physical assault on his girlfriend Neeru Randhawa, which were later dropped.

On Friday, the NCB nabbed television actor Gaurav Dixit, for alleged drug possession and he was produced in a court on Saturday, where police sought his custody, informing a court here that he was a member of a drug cartel. The NCB had been on the lookout for the actor for the past few months after his name cropped up in the interrogation of actor Ajaz Khan and some other persons in April this year.
