A court in Mumbai on Monday sent Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik's son-in-law, Sameer Khan, to a 14-day judicial custody in connection with a drug case.

Earlier today, Sameer Khan was sent for a medical check-up after which he was produced before a court.

Sameer Khan was arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on January 13 in connection with a drug case. The arrest was made after the seizure of a large quantity of 200 kgs Ganja from one courier at Bandra West.

The prosecutor on January 14 had said that NCB had found evidence from Sameer regarding some chats indicating that he was planning to mix CBD oil and other chemicals with marijuana.

"We have come to know that there were multiple transactions between Karan and Sameer Khan which was much more than Rs 20,000. He was involved in the commercial activity of drug so we have invoked 27A of the NDPS Act (Punishment for financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders) act against him," NCB prosecutor said.

In a tweet on January 14, Malik said, "Nobody is above the law and it should be applied without any discrimination. Law will take its due course and justice will prevail. I respect and have immense faith in our judiciary."
