According to reports, the NCB has very clearly stated that there has been no physical torture or harassment. Kshitij’s family and lawyers were informed as per the procedure. He was also allowed to meet his father-in-law and wife.
The honourable court has observed in its order on September 27 that no physical ill-treatment has been given to the accused. The observation of the court has also been produced in the press release which states no physical ill-treatment was given to him during the custody by the NCB authority.
The report further added that the reason why NCB wanted his custody was because he was not co-operating and his answers were quite evasive.
Kshitij Ravi Prasad, who was arrested in the case on Saturday, has been remanded to NCB’s custody till October 3. He’s among 20, including Rhea Chakraborty, who is in custody. An NCB official seeking Prasad’s remand said he was a key accused linked to the “drug syndicate” and was being uncooperative.
