Post the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Narcotics Control Bureau came into action as a drug angle emerged in the case. The investigating agency then dived deep into exposing the alleged drugs nexus prevailing in Bollywood. Many Bollywood stars came under the scanner of the Narcotics Control Bureau. Among all, an ex-employee of Karan Johar's Dharma Productions named Kshitij Prasad was arrested by the NCB. Now, after months, he has been granted bail.
As reported by ANI, Kshitij has been granted bail by a special NDPS court. Reportedly, this was for the second time that Kshitij was arrested in a drug case. A tweet made by the news agency read, "Dharma Productions former executive producer Kshitij Ravi Prasad granted bail by Special NDPS court today in connection with a drug case." A report in Mid-day states that he was arrested for procuring 4 gram cocaine from one Ali, who worked in the film industry who was connected to Emeka.
As Kshitij Prasad's name emerged in the drugs case, Dharma Productions distanced itself from the controversy by releasing an official statement. It read, "I would like to state that several media/news channels have been airing news reports that Kshitij Prasad and Anubhav Chopra are my aides/close aides. I would like to place on record that I do not know these individuals personally and neither of these two individuals are aides or close aides."
