After the anti-drug agency recovered a "small quantity of cannabis" during a search of their home this morning, Comedian Bharti Singh and her husband, Harsh Limbachiyaa, have been taken to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB)'s Mumbai office for questioning.
"She (Bharti Singh) and her husband both have been detained for questioning by the NCB about possession of narcotics substances", NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede told reporters here.
The raids are the latest in the series of those conducted at the residences of big names associated with Bollywood.
Earlier NCB had summoned Arjun Rampal's girlfriend, Gabriella.
"NCB raided production office & house of comedian Bharti Singh & from both the places 86.5 grams of Ganja was recovered".
According to a report in DNA, on reaching the NCB office, Bharti told the reporters, "They have called us for some questioning, that's all".
Police seek suspect after eight injured in Wisconsin mall shooting
EIGHT PEOPLE have been injured in a shooting incident at a Wisconsin mall, as local police continue their search for the suspect. Police said the victims were taken to the hospital and that the extent of their injuries was unknown.
The agency is also carrying out searches at two other locations in the metropolis, the official added.
Many netizens were quick to link the action against a popular star of The Kapil Sharma Show to the Sony TV programme's attempt to mock Arnab Goswami in one of their recent episodes.
Trouble is mounting for Comedian Bharti Singh.
Bharti was arrested after hours of interrogation by the NCB. They got married in December 2017 and have been working together for many years now. She also hosts a television reality show along with her husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa.
The agency's widening investigation into drug consumption within the film industry began with the inquiry into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide in June.
