Actor Armaan Kohli denied bail in drugs case | Hindi Movie News

A special NDPS court here on Thursday rejected the bail application of Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli in a drugs case. Judge A A Joglekar rejected the bail plea. A detailed order was not available yet.

Kohli was arrested on August 29 following a raid by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) at his residence during which banned drugs were allegedly seized.

His lawyers had argued that only a small quantity of drugs was allegedly recovered from his possession, which is a relatively lesser offence, so he was entitled to bail.

The NCB opposed the application, claiming that the actor had direct links with two prime accused in the case from whom a large “commercial” quantity of contraband was recovered.

Under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, offences involving commercial quantity (which varies for different banned substances) attract higher punishment.

Earlier, a magistrate’s court had denied bail to Kohli.

The actor had featured in the Salman Khan-starter ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ among other Hindi films, and was also one of the contestants of the TV reality show ‘Bigg Boss’.
