A special NDPS court here on Thursday rejected the bail application of Bollywood actor Armaan Kohli in a drugs case. Judge AA Joglekar rejected the bail plea. A detailed order was not available yet. Kohli was arrested on August 29 following a raid by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) at his residence during which banned drugs were allegedly seized. His lawyers had argued that only a small quantity of drugs was allegedly recovered from his possession, which is a relatively lesser offense, so he was entitled to bail.

The NCB opposed the application, claiming that the actor had direct links with two prime accused in the case from whom a large "commercial" quantity of contraband was recovered. Under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, offenses involving commercial quantity (which varies for different banned substances) attract higher punishment.
