Actor Gaurav Dixit granted bail in a drug case against Rs. 50000 borg
A Mumbai Court granted bail to actor Gaurav Dixit in a drug case, but with strict conditions. The court asked him to provide a bail of R50 000. It also told Gaurav not to leave the city without prior permission and to whom he would have to report NCB office every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until the filing of the charge sheet. Actor Gaurav Dixit was arrested on August 27 by the Narcotics Control Bureau. The investigative agency recovered large quantities of illicit drugs such as ‘MD’ and ‘Charas’ during an attack on his home in Lokhandwala. Gaurav was arrested after his name came to light during the interrogation of actor Ajaz Khan. Following Gaurav’s arrest, NCB Director Sameer Wankhede told ETimes that the agency believed Gaurav had supplied drugs to Ajaz Khan and that they were both in contact with drug dealer Shadab Batata. According to some reports, Ajaz had a direct connection with Shadab Shaikh alias Shadab Batata. Both have been in contact for the past three years and the actor even bought drugs from him. The drug dealer was arrested by the NCB in May this year with drugs worth R2 billion. Ajaz’s name appeared during the interrogation of Shadab. Reports also say that the agency recovered WhatsApp chats and a voice memo shared between Ajaz and Shadab. However, Ajaz’s lawyer maintained that ‘no drugs were found in his client’s house and the investigating agency took drugs belonging to his wife’. Come back to Gaurav Dixit who will be out of jail soon. The actor has worked in films such as ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’, ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’, ‘The Magic of Cinema’ and others. He was also seen in a TV show titled ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’.
