A Delhi police team probing the drugs case against Sahil Zarru, the Kashmiri youth who allegedly supplied drugs to Rahul Mahajan, continued its investigations on Thursday for the second day, sources said.
The team, headed by a SHO-level officer, was reportedly probing if Sahil had any contacts with drugs suppliers in Mumbai and whether he was involved in supplying drugs while staying in Mumbai as a student and later as a businessman, sources said.
The team which arrived in Mumbai the day before Wednesdayhad earlier initiated its independent probe, but later took help of Mumbai Police to expedite their investigations, sources said.
Mumbai Police Commissioner AN Roy said that the Delhi Police team was in touch with the Marine Drive police and the Colaba Police in connection with the criminal offence registered against Zarruin Mumbai.
Sahil, is wanted in the Wildlife Protection Act case registered against him by Marine Drive police in April this year.
Police raided Sahil's Kashmiri artefacts shop at a plush star hotel in south Mumbai in April following a tip off by a NGO that the shop was selling banned Shahtoosh shawls. Sahil reportedly fled with the banned material when police landed at the shop and remained absconding for long.
Later, he secured anticipatory bail from a local court and did not attend the proceedings, prompting the court to declare him as wanted, sources said.
The trial of the case is likely to begin some time this month, police sources said.
