The married duo of Bharti Singh, comedian and writer Harsh Limbachiyaa has been taken by the NCB for an interrogation.
The anti-narcotic agency recovered a ‘small quantity of cannabis’ during their raid at the couple’s Mumbai residence.
The visuals show that Harsh left with NCB officials in a white van while Bharti followed in a red Mercedes.
According to news agency PTI, NCB officials Bharti’s name emerged during questioning of a drug peddler and the search of her home ‘recovered a small amount of cannabis’.
The official also shared that they also searched at the two other locations in Mumbai.
ANI quoted Sameer Wankhede saying, “She and her husband both have been detained for questioning by NCB about possession of narcotics substances.”
With more reference to the on-going Bollywood drugs probe, actor Arjun Rampal’s home was searched earlier this month and both he and his partner Gabriella Demetriades were summoned by the anti-drug agency.
Gabriella was questioned for almost 12 hours last week while Arjun Rampal was quizzed for six hours.
The actor told the agency: “I am fully cooperating with the investigation.
I have nothing to do with drugs. The medicine found at my residence was prescribed. The prescription has been found and handed over.”
The raid had arisen amid the drug nexus probe that began with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, into alleged drug use by members of the entertainment industry.
The developments this week started with the Sunday raid at veteran Bollywood filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala’s home in Juhu and the arrest of his wife Shabana, who was granted bail on Monday.
