Mumbai, November 20: After conducting the raid at Comedian Bharti Singh and her husband, Harsh Limbachiyaa premises, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) dented them for interrogation after the anti-drug agency recovered a "small quantity of cannabis" during a search.
NCB's Mumbai Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede was also present during the raid at Bharti Singh-Haarsh Limbachiyaa's residence in Andheri west.
"She and her husband both have been detained for questioning by NCB about possession of narcotics substances," says Sameer Wankhede, Zonal Director, NCB Office, Mumbai after the anti-drug agency recovered a "small quantity of cannabis" during a search.
Bharti Singh is one of the most well-known names in the world of Television, having worked for over a decade in various popular shows like The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, Comedy Circus, among others. She is currently a part of The Kapil Sharma Show.
According to the NCB, her name emerged during questioning of a drug peddler. The agency also carried out searches at two other locations in Mumbai, the official added.
Earlier this month actor Arjun Rampal's home was searched, and both he and his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades, were summoned for questioning.
The raid came amid the drug nexus probe that began with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, into alleged drug use by members of the entertainment industry.
Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had recently summoned film producer Firoz Nadiadwala in connection to the probe in the high-profile drug scandal surrounding the Hindi film industry.
