Karan Sajnani, the British national, and two other women have been arrested by NCB in the drug case. One of the arrested woman have been identified as Rahila Furniturewala, an ex-manager of Bollywood actress. The other arrested woman have been identified as Rahila’s sister.
A total of 75 kgs of marijuana, 125 kgs of marijuana-kind of material and many cannabis buds from US, which are of high value, have been recovered from Karan Sajnani.
The contraband was packed in the form of pre-rolled Ganja joints by Karan Sajnani and was marketed to high class clients in Mumbai and various other states, according to NCB. The smuggling activity was supported by Rahila Furniturewala by providing financial and other aids.
According to NCB, Karan Sajnani is related to the Sushant Singh Rajput case. He was supplier to Anuj Keswani who was arrested in the drug probe related to Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
