Bharati Singh has appeared in many comedy and reality shows on TV. Following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June, the NCB is investigating allegations of drug use in Bollywood. Earlier this month, the NCB attacked the home of actor Arjun Rampal and filmmaker Feroz Nadiadwala in connection with the drug investigation.
The narcotics control bureau (NCB) has questioned Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal for nearly 7 hours on November 13 in a drug case. After the NBC inquiry, Rampal told reporters that I had nothing to do with drugs. I have a prescription for medications found at my residence and the slip is being handed over to NCB officials.
Rampal’s friend arrested by NCB
On November 12, the NCB arrested Arjun Rampal’s foreign friend Paul Barthal on questioning. Rampal and his partner Demetriades were summoned by the NCB after an investigation into their residence in Bandra. Rampal’s driver was also questioned by the agency for confiscating electronic devices such as laptops, mobile phones and tablets. Based on official information from the Directorate of Enforcement (ED), the NCB has launched an investigation into cases involving people in the Hindi film industry taking drugs. The NCB has received many chats during this time and it all started after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
