Meanwhile, Kohli was also accused of physically assaulting his girlfriend, Neeru Randhawa in 2018.

The raid at Kohli’s home took place on the basis of information revealed by an alleged drug peddler who, like the actor, was arrested on Saturday. He is suspected to have purchased drugs from the alleged peddler.

Since last year, the NCB has questioned several major Bollywood names, including Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan in connection with an alleged Bollywood-drugs mafia nexus. The actors’ questioning was linked to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead in his Mumbai flat on June 14 last year.
