Crime NCB raids comedienne Bharti Singh’s Mumbai house

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) raided comedienne Bharti Singh’s residence in Mumbai today.

The raids were part of an expanding probe, which began with inquiries into the mysterious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June, into alleged drug use by members of the entertainment industry.

This is the latest in a series of raids conducted at residences of big names associated with Bollywood. Actor Arjun Rampal and film producer Firoz Nadiawala were raided by the agency earlier this month in connection with a drugs probe.

The NCB initiated a probe into the consumption and possession of drugs by people in the Hindi film industry after it received official communication from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), in which 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 9 September and subsequently released on bail by the bureau after she spent nearly a month in jail on charges of procuring drugs for him.

The NCB had earlier 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 Demetriades’s brother and is currently in the agency’s custody.

Bartel was granted bail on 19 November. According to news agency, the special court that granted him relief observed there was no “substantial material” to prove wrongdoing on his part.

Prior to that the NCB had also summoned film producer Firoz Nadiadwala. A day earlier his wife, Shabana Saeed, was arrested after investigators allegedly found 10 g of marijuana at their home in Mumbai’s Juhu during a raid. Saeed has since been released on bail.

The Nadiadwala residence had been searched following the arrest of drug peddler Wahid Abdul Kadir Shaikh in Andheri a few days before that. As the agency tracked Shaikh’s clients, links to Saeed, who allegedly purchased 10 g of the contraband from him, emerged, the NCB said.
