Panaji, March 8 (IANS) Three persons, including one Maharaj Shah, who is allegedly linked to the drug probe following the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput last year, have been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau officials in Goa, an official said on Monday.

Two foreign nationals, residing in the North Goa coastal belt have also been arrested, the NCB official said.

"We have arrested one Maharaj Shah from Miramar in Panaji and two foreign nationals as part of our raids," the official said, adding that large quantities of drugs have also been seized as part of the Bureau's operation.

The NCB is expected to issue a formal statement, later in the day, on the simultaneous raids which have been conducted by the central agency since Sunday.

The NCB has been tasked with probing the allegations of drug abuse, linked to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, who hanged himself in June 2020 in his rented Bandra flat in Mumbai.
