Comedian actor Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa, have been taken into custody after Mumbai Zonal Unit of the Narcotics Control Bureau raided their house and found questionable material.
Zonal Unit of NCB raided the residence of Bharti and Harsh this morning. The raid was conducted for several hours and official found some suspicious contra-band. The officials have taken Bharti into custody for further questioning. NCB is doing search raid in Andheri, Lokhandwala and Versova areas.
Visuals from outside the apartment complex in which they live showed Mr Limbachiyaa being driven away in a white NCB van while Ms Singh followed in a red Mercedes.
According to an NCB official, Ms Singh's name emerged during questioning of a drug peddler and 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.
The raids come amid an expanding probe - which began with inquiries into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June - into alleged drug use by members of the entertainment industry.
Earlier this month actor Arjun Rampal's home was searched, and both he and his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades, were summoned for questioning.
The NCB had earlier also arrested Paul Bartel, an Australian architect whose name emerged as an alleged supplier after the questioning of Agisialos Demetriades - a South African national who is Ms Demetriades's brother and is currently in the agency's custody.
NCB had also summoned film producer Firoz Nadiadwala after his wife, Shabana Saeed, was arrested after investigators allegedly found 10 grams of marijuana at their home in Mumbai's Juhu during a raid. Ms Saeed has since been released on bail.
