Mumbai: Actor and former 'Bigg Boss' contestant Ajaz Khan was arrested by the Anti-Narcotics Cell of Navi Mumbai Police for allegedly possessing a banned drug, an official said Tuesday.
He was arrested from a hotel in CBD Belapur in neighbouring Navi Mumbai, police said.

"Based on specific information, the 35-year-old actor was arrested from the room of a hotel in Belapur. Khan, a resident of Andheri sububrb in Mumbai, was possessing tablets of  'Ecstasy', a narcotic drug," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime), Tushar Doshi, said.

Khan will be produced before a court, he said.

In 2016, Khan was arrested for sending obscene photos and abusive messages to a 36-year-old hair stylist. He was later released on bail by a court in Borivli.
