The report said the new raids come after interrogation and input from 20 people who have already been arrested in the Mumbai cruise drug case.
On Saturday, the National Central Bank also conducted raids at three locations in Mumbai as part of the ongoing investigation. The news agency ANI quoted the National Commercial Bank as saying that the raids were carried out in locations including Andheri and Gohu, since Saturday morning.
On October 9, the National Commercial Office conducted searches at the residence and office of film producer Imtiaz Khatri and his office in the suburb of Bandra.

Aryan Khan’s bail request in drug bankruptcy case will be presented in court on Tuesday. The 23-year-old has been taken to a special barracks and is being monitored by officials. In addition, its security has also been enhanced.
Aryan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on 3 October from the cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. He will have to stay in jail until at least October 20, as a special court published his bail requests and two more for orders that day. He is being held at Arthur Road Prison along with five others who were arrested in the case.
After hearing extensive arguments from the investigative agency, the DEA and defense attorneys on Thursday, Special Judge V. Patel published the order on the orders on October 20.
It is alleged that a delirium party was taking place on the ship and Aryan Khan was on board. No drugs were found in his possession, according to a central bank official.
An official said Aryan Khan underwent counseling while in DEA custody. During his session, the actor’s son Sameer Wankedi, district manager in the Mumbai unit of the National Commercial Bank, promised that he would do a good job and be proud of him one day.
Aryan Khan, after his release, said he would work for the “social and financial uplift of the poor and oppressed” and would never do anything that could bring him publicity for the wrong reasons. “I will do something that makes you proud of me,” the official added.
