Film producer Firoz Nadiadwala’s wife Shabana Saeed was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday hours after their house was searched by the agency in connection to a drugs case. Ten grams of cannabis was found from their Juhu residence.
“Film producer Firoz Nadiadwala’s wife has been arrested today. The operation is still going on hence the names of the other three suppliers cannot be revealed at this stage. We have seized commercial quantities of drugs from their possession in the entire operation,” Sameer Wankhede, Zonal Director of the NCB, confirmed the news.
“Andheri resident Wahid Abdul Kadir Shaikh alias Sultan Mirza was arrested from Andheri (West) following a tip-off. During interrogation, he revealed the name of one Saeed, to whom he had supplied cannabis. Shaikh is in the drug supply from several years and is known as Sultan Mirza in the drug supply chain,” the NCB officials said.
Firoz Nadiadwala, who has produced blockbusters like ‘Phir Hera Pheri’, ‘Awara Pagal Deewana’ and ‘Welcome’, has also been summoned to appear in front of the agency.
More details are awaited.
