The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested actor Ajaz Khan after eight hours of interrogation in connection with a drug case, officials were quoted by ANI as saying. The officials added, "Ajaz Khan has been arrested for his connection with the Batata Gang. 4.5 grams of Alprozol tablets were recovered by chance during his house search, but he is mainly arrested for his association with Batata Gang".
