Jaffer, known for producing several Tamil films, was arrested by NCB on Saturday, March 9, following weeks of evasion. He was apprehended in Jaipur for his purported involvement with an international drug cartel.

This arrest follows Jaffer’s evasion since February 15, 2024, when NCB seized 50.070 kg of pseudoephedrine from a warehouse belonging to Aventa Company and detained three of Jaffer’s associates. Subsequently, the DMK expelled Jaffer from the party indefinitely, citing his actions as dishonorable upon learning of his involvement in drug trafficking. The party issued directives for its members to sever all connections with him.
