Since the past few months now, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been investigating the alleged drug nexus of Bollywood, following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. In the ongoing drug probe, several names cropped up and many got under the NCB scanner for their alleged involvement. As the agency detained a few for interrogation, Dharma Productions’ ex-staffer Kshitij Prasad was arrested in September. According to the latest reports, Kshitij Ravi Prasad has been granted bail by the special NDPS court.
ANI reported that Kshitij Ravi Prasad was granted bail in connection with the drug case. As per the reports, he was asked to furnish a personal bond of Rs 50, 000 for his bail. Apart from this, Prasad has also been ordered to deposit his passport with the officials, to ensure that he does not leave the country until the next orders from the court. On Twitter, the report read, “Dharma Productions former executive producer Kshitij Ravi Prasad granted bail by Special NDPS court today in connection with a drug case. He has to furnish a personal bond of Rs 50,000 and deposit his passport for bail.”
Kshitij Ravi Prasad was taken into custody by the NCB on September 26. He was granted bail after nearly two months in judicial custody. Before his arrest, Prasad was also interrogated by the agency. Reportedly, the NCB had searched his Versova residence and found a small quantity of weed.
