MUMBAI: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has summoned comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa in a drug-related case, according to a report by ANI.
Earlier, the agency conducted a raid at the residence of comedian Bharti Singh in Mumbai.
Earlier this month, Bollywood actor-model Arjun Rampal was questioned by the NCB in relation to a drug case. The 47-year-old actor, whose home was also raided, said that he is cooperating with 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,” Rampal was quoted saying as he left the NCB’s Mumbai zonal office. The NCB is expected to grill Rampal in the coming days.
Rampal was yet another top actor to be grilled by the NCB – the others being Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan.
The NCB launched the probe into alleged drug use in Bollywood after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June. The central agency arrested Rajput’s girlfriend, actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and a few others under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Rhea and some other accused are currently out on bail.
