Pawar had recently reached the court for anticipatory bail. They feared to be arrested. On Thursday, the NDPS court dismissed his bail plea. After this, the NCB has stepped up their search. Zonal director of NCB Sameer Wankhede told English newspaper Times of India that he is looking for Pawar. It is being said that Pawar worked with Sushant Singh for some time. But he was removed last year.
NCB officials say Pawar lives in Chemur, Mumbai. He was removed from his job. But in spite of this, he used to visit his flat constantly to meet Sushant. According to an NCB official, he wanted to interrogate Pawar about the drugs angle. But Pawar was not cooperating in the investigation. Despite the summons being issued, Pawar refused to come for questioning. Since then, his role in this case is considered suspicious.
