Earlier on Friday, the NCB arrested a man named Sahil Ali who allegedly supplied cocaine to Arjun Rampal’s partner’s brother Agisilaos Demetriades. The South African national was arrested a few days back for consuming and supplying banned drugs.
As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Sahil confessed to the NCB that he is a peddler and has been supplying drugs to Demetriades. The daily quoted NCB official saying, “Ali admitted that he had supplied cocaine to Demetriades and claimed that Demetriades was a peddler.”

Bollywood A-listers like Deepika Padukone, Sharddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh were also questioned in the case.
