Ajaz Khan, known for his participation in Bigg Boss 7, was apprehended by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) at Mumbai airport in 2021, following his alleged involvement in a drug case.
In March 2021, he was arrested by the NCB after being found in possession of 31 tablets of Alprazolam, weighing a total of 4.5 grams.
After spending a two-year period behind bars, Ajaz has recently been granted bail, bringing joy to his family.
His wife eagerly awaits their reunion, excited for this long-awaited moment.
In 2022, Ajaz Khan faced a setback when the Bombay High Court denied his bail plea. The court stated that the charge sheet filed against him provided prima facie evidence of his involvement in the crime.
It indicated financial transactions related to illicit drug trafficking and purchase.
However, after enduring a two-year period of incarceration, Ajaz Khan can finally return home. He has been granted bail and is scheduled for release from the Arthur Road jail today, May 19, at approximately 6:40 pm.
Expressing her joy, Ajaz's wife, Andrea Asha Khan, released a statement, expressing the family's happiness. She stated, "This is an incredibly joyous moment for us, and we eagerly await his return home. We have deeply missed him during these years of separation."
Ajaz Khan, who hails from Ahmedabad, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on allegations of involvement with drug peddlers Farooq Batata and his son Shadab Batata.
According to officials, Ajaz was accused of both consuming drugs obtained from Shadab Batata and being involved in their distribution.
The actor is married to Andrea Khan, and they have a son named Alexander Khan. Ajaz gained recognition after participating as a wild card contestant on the stunt reality show Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 in April 2014.
