The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday raided the production office and house of comedian Bharti Singh and from both the places 86.5 gms of ganja was recovered.
The comedienne has been taken for medical and will spend the night in the NCB lockup. She will be presented before the NDPS holiday court on Sunday.
Both Bharti and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa accepted consumption of ganja. Bharti Singh has been arrested and examination of Limbachiyaa is underway, NCB said in a release.
Earlier, after a raid at their residence, Bharti and Harsh were detained and taken for investigations to the NCB offices in south Mumbai in separate vehicles where they were being questioned. On reaching the NCB offices, Bharti Singh briefly told media persons that they had been “called for some questioning”.
Comedienne Bharti and Harsh are noted comedians, television personalities hosting programmes, appearing in reality shows or serials.
Notably, a raid was also conducted at the residence of actor Arjun Rampal, after which he and his girlfriend were summoned by the NCB for questioning in the matter.
NCB had earlier raided a place in Khar Danda area and nabbed a trafficker aged 21 years with various drugs including 15 blots of LSD (commercial quantity), ganja (40 grams) and Nitrazepam (psychotropic medicines).
The latest action is part of the ongoing investigations into Bollywood-drugs mafia nexus which the NCB is trying to unravel since the past three months or so.
Since September till date, the NCB has arrested over 20 persons including Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty, now on bail, her brother Showik and other film industry related persons, drug financiers, suppliers or peddlers, including some foreigners.
As the NCB claims to have unearthed a close link between drugs mafia and the glamour industry, it has questioned several prominent film personalities.
They included actresses Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, model-cum-actor Arjun Rampal, and filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala, whose wife Shabana was arrested and got bail after some quantities of ‘commercial quantity’ drugs were found at her residence.
The NCB investigations are an off-shoot of the probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead at his Bandra home on June 14 which sparked off a huge political controversy.
