Demetriades, who was arrested by the NCB in October this year after it raided a resort in Lonavala, where it also allegedly found drugs. He had secured bail in the matter in October, however, he was not released as the NCB had filed an FIR in another drug-related matter.

Sushant was found dead in his Bandra apartment in June this year.
