The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested television comedian Harsh Limbachiya early on Sunday, for alleged possession and consumption of a banned drug, marijuana, a top official said.
The arrest came a day after his wife and comedy queen Bharti Singh was arrested in the same case late on Saturday, stunning the entertainment world.
The NCB’s actions followed a raid and seizure of around 86.50g of marijuana — which is said to be of commercial quantity — from their home and office, and the duo even confessed to consuming drugs.
The NCB zeroed in on the couple after a couple of drug peddlers, arrested in an ongoing action late on Friday, revealed the names of Singh and Limbachiya, informed NCB Zonal head Sameer Wankhede.
Both Singh and Limbachiya shall be produced before a Special NDPS Court later on Sunday afternoon.
