Drug Case: Comedian Bharti Singh, husband granted bail by Mumbai Court

Comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiya, who were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) over alleged possession and use of cannabis were granted bail by a Mumbai court on Monday.

Singh and her husband were produced before a magistrate’s court on Sunday by the NCB after which they were sent to 14-day judicial custody.

The couple filed bail pleas soon after being remanded to judicial custody.

On Saturday, Bharti Singh and her husband were taken for questioning after the anti-narcotic agency recovered a ‘small quantity of cannabis’ during raid at their Mumbai residence. Later in the day, they both were arrested by NCB.

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.
