Mumbai: Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal arrives at Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office on Friday morning for questioning in anti- drugs probe that began during the investigation of the death of late Sushant Singh Rajput in June 14.
On Monday 9th November, Rampal’s house was being searched by the officials. His girlfriend Gabriela Demetriades was questioned by the agency on Wednesday.
The NCB probe of Hindi Film Industry started in September this year when Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-employees and girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty were arrested for arranging drugs for the late actor after the agency found the WhatsApp chats regarding the drugs in Chakraborty’s phone.
On Monday, film producer Firoz Nadiadwala was summoned by the bureau, a day after his wife Shabana Saeed was arrested on Sunday after investigators allegedly found 10 grams of marijuana at their home in Juhu, Mumbai, during a raid.
The Nadiadwala residence was searched on Sunday following the arrest of drug peddler Wahid Abdul Kadir Shaikh in Andheri a few days earlier. As the agency tracked Shaikh’s clients, NCB officers stumbled upon his link to Ms Saeed who had allegedly purchased 10 gm of the contraband from him, according to the NCB.
In the last two months, the A class actresses like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakulpreet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor were questioned by NCB regarding the supplies.
