Bombay High Court has granted bail to actor Armaan Kohli, who will be released upon paying a surety of Rs 1 lakh. He was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a drugs case and was lodged in jail for the last 1 year.

Armaan Kohli was arrested on August 29, 2021, by NCB for possession of 1.2 grams of cocaine. The court held that after examining the material obtained during the probe, 'prima-facie' it seemed that Kohli was 'well-connected with the co-accused pertaining to the illicit trafficking of drugs.'

A single bench of Justice N W Sambre granted bail to Kohli on a surety of Rs one lakh and imposed a slew of conditions on him. While granting relief, the HC said the 50-year-old actor, arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in August 2021, shall not indulge in similar activities and directed him to appear before the drug law enforcement agency once a month.

Justice Sambre said if Kohli flouts any of the conditions imposed on him, the NCB can seek cancellation of his bail.

The court said it would pass a detailed order later.

The NCB had booked Kohli under various provisions of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) for consumption, possession and financing of banned contraband.

The actor was taken into custody by the NCB following the arrest of a Nigerian national in the case.

Kohli has featured in several Bollywood films and also participated in a popular TV reality show. He has acted in films like 'Jaani Dushman', 'Kohra', 'Veer', 'Dushman Zamana' and 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo', among others.
