MUMBAI: In a latest development. the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) conducted a raid at comedian Bharti Singh’s residence in Mumbai on Saturday. This comes amid investigations into a “drug angle” in actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The raid at Singh’s residence is the latest in a series of raids conducted at residences of big names associated with the Bollywood film industry.
Actor Arjun Rampal and film producer Firoz Nadiadwala were also raided by the agency earlier this month in connection with a drugs probe.
It needs mention here that the Narcotics Control Bureau launched an investigation into the consumption and possession of drugs by people in the Hindi film industry after it received official communication from the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
According to reports, there were various chats related to drug consumption, procurement, usage, and transportation in connection with actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Rhea Chakraborty, Rajput’s girlfriend, was arrested on September 9 and subsequently released on bail by the NCB after nearly a month behind bars after she was accused of procuring drugs for the actor.
More details are awaited.
