THE Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday arrested comedian Bharti Singh following seizure of ganja (cannabis) from her house in suburban Andheri, an official said. The NCB searched Singh’s house and office in the morning as part of its probe into alleged drug use in 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. It recovered 86.5 grams of ganja during the search, the release added. “Both Ms Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiya accepted consumption of ganja,” the NCB release added.
