After getting arrested in a drug case, Armaan Kohli has now been sent to 14-day judicial custody by a Mumbai court. However, the actor moved a bail plea before the court soon after being remanded to judicial custody.

Armaan Kohli was placed under arrest on August 28 after being questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), who recovered drugs from his house during a raid in Juhu. He was produced before the court at the end of his NCB custody on Wednesday (September 1). Earlier, the NCB had told the court that it had seized more than one gram of cocaine from Armaan’s house during a raid.

The court sent the 49-year-old actor to jail under judicial custody as no further remand was sought by the apex drug law enforcement agency. NCB had told the court that there was evidence to suggest that Kohli was associated with an international drug syndicate. Ajay Raju Singh, an alleged drug peddler who was arrested by the NCB along with the actor, was also sent to 14-day judicial custody by the court.

Armaan Kohli has participated in the reality show Bigg Boss. He has also appeared in films like Jaani Dushman and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, among others.
