Comedian Bharti Singh arrested by NCB after questioning

Popular comedian Bharti Singh has been arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday in connection with a drugs case.

Singh and her husband, Harsh Limbachiyaa, were taken for questioning after the anti-narcotic agency recovered a ‘small quantity of cannabis’ during raid at their Mumbai residence.

Singh’s name had cropped up during the interrogation of a drug peddler. The agency also carried out searches at two other locations, sources said.

The NCB’s Bollywood drugs angle probe was launched after the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput at his Bandra home on June 14. Numerous prominent personalities have been either questioned, arrested or raided.

Earlier this month, NCB conducted searches at Rampal and partner Gabriella’s house. He and his partner were summoned by the anti-drug agency.
