Prasad, who then worked for the firm owned by filmmaker Karan Johar, was arrested in September 2020 for alleged involvement in a drug trafficking case related to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death. He later got bail. In a plea moved through advocate Nikhil Maneshinde, he sought discharge from the case, stating that he was innocent and there was no evidence against him. The federal anti-drug agency opposed the application in its written response on Thursday.

The NCB alleged Prasad had conducted transactions with several drug dealers and is part of a chain of drug dealers engaged in illicit traffic of drugs. He had accepted his role in the commission of offences described under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, the NCB claimed.

Section 27A deals with 'financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders' and attracts jail term up to 20 years. Prasad's plea will be heard by the court on October 13.
