“Actor Arjun Rampal seeks time till 21st December, to appear before NCB,” an official told ANI.
The NCB on Tuesday had summoned the actor to appear before it today in a drug-related case probe.
Notably, Arjun Rampal was questioned by the NCB on November 13 in the matter.
NCB officials had on November 9 conducted a raid at the residence of Arjun Rampal and seized some electronic gadgets. Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades was later questioned for six hours on the same day.
The NCB has also arrested Paul Bartel, a friend of Arjun Rampal, in the case. Further investigation in the drug-related cases is underway.
Meanwhile, a special narcotics court in Mumbai on Tuesday granted bail to Agisilaos Demetriades, the brother of Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella, in connection with a drug case.
The special Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court granted him bail on a surety of Rs 50,000. It also asked Demetriades to submit his passport and not to leave the city without informing the Narcotics Control Bureau.
Demetriades was arrested by the NCB in October this year after it raided a resort in Lonavala, where it also allegedly found drugs. He had secured bail in the matter in October, however, he was not released as the NCB had filed an FIR in another drug-related matter.
