Earlier today the Narcotics Control Bureau conducted a search at comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa’s residence. The officials found a small quantity of cannabis from their place. The search was conducted as part of an ongoing probe by NCB that started after the tragic death of Bollywood superstar, Sushant Singh Rajput.
One of the investigating officers said that their name pooped up during an investigation of a peddler and that’s why the officials searched her residence. He also added that the agency is searching for two more places in the metropolis. Bharti Singh had reached the NCB office in Red Mercedes and her husband was taken in an NCB Van. Upon reaching the office, the comedian said that they have been called for questioning and nothing else. Even the investigating official confirmed and said, “She (Ms. Singh) and her husband have been detained for questioning about possession of narcotics substances,”
Bharti Singh is a famous television personality and is known for her various comedy shows across the channel.
Earlier this month, Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades, was summoned for questioning and his residence was also searched thoroughly by the officials. Gabriella Demetriades was questioned for two days or 12 hours in total and Mr. Rampal was questioned for six hours straight. While talking to the media, Rampal said, “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 NCB has been investing the drug usage in Bollywood and the entertainment industry after the death of Bollywood superstar, Sushant Singh Rajput. A few months back, various personal chats of actors were leaked online which specifically talked about drugs. Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakrobary and her brother Showik Chakrobarty were arrested under the section of the NDPS Act. However, Rhea Chakraborty is currently out on bail.
