Comedian Bharti Singh, her husband arrested for storing, consuming cannabis
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Sunday arrested comedian Bharti Singh’s husband, Haarsh Limbachiyaa after questioning him for nearly 15 hours, reports said.
Earlier, the NCB had arrested Bharti Singh on Saturday following seizure of ganja (cannabis) from her house in suburban Andheri. According to the NCB, it recovered 86.5 grams of ganja from Singh’s residence.
The NCB conducted raids at Singh’s house and office as part of its probe into alleged drug use by members belonging to the Hindi film industry.
A team led by Sameer Wankhede, the central agency’s zonal director, carried out a search at Singh’s residence at Lokhandwala Complex as well as her production house based on a tip-off, a release said.
“Both Ms Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiya accepted consumption of ganja,” an NCB release stated. “Singh’s name had cropped up during the interrogation of a drug peddler,” NCB officials added.
Bharti Singh has appeared in many comedy and reality shows on TV. She has also hosted a few such shows.
