NCB Summons Comedian Bharti Singh, Husband, Hours After Raiding His Mumbai Residence
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) summoned comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa on Saturday hours after conducting a raid on their residence in Mumbai, the ANI news agency reported.
This is the latest in a series of raids carried out on residences of big names associated with Bollywood. Actor Arjun Rampal and film producer Firoz Nadiadwala were also raided by the agency earlier this month in connection with a drug investigation.
The NCB initiated an investigation into the use and possession of drugs by individuals in the Hindi film industry after receiving an official communication from the Directorate of Enforcement (ED), in which there were several talks related to the use, acquisition, the use and transportation of drugs in connection with the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Rhea Chakraborty, Rajput’s girlfriend, was arrested on September 9 and later released on bail by the agency after spending nearly a month in jail on charges of procuring drugs for him.
More details are expected.
