Comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa were detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the drug case earlier in the day today. And now, as per the reports, after questioning, Bharti Singh has been arrested. The two were taken to NCB’s Mumbai office for questioning after the anti-drug agency recovered a “small quantity of cannabis” during a search of their home this morning.
According to another NCB official, as has been quoted by news agency PTI, ”Ms. Singh’s name emerged during questioning of a drug peddler; a search of her home recovered a “small quantity of cannabis”. The agency also carried out searches at two other locations in Mumbai,” the official added. Reports also suggest that the couple admitted to consuming marijuana.
Bharti and Harsh’s names have emerged post the drug probe that started with Rhea Chakraborty’s arrested, Arjun Rampal’s questioning, among other recent instances.
