Kshitij Ravi Prasad has been remanded to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) custody till 3rd October, as per a report by ANI.

Prasad was arrested by NCB in relation to the drugs probe that surfaced after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. While media houses have been calling Prasad a Dharma Productions employee, Karan Johar has denied it in a statement, saying that he doesn't know him personally.

Karan Johar in his statement said Prasad joined Dharmatic Entertainment, the sister concern of Dharma Productions, in November 2019 as one of the executive producers on a contract basis for a project which eventually did not materialise.
