In a related development, NCB detained another drug peddler today, whose arrest is being probed in relation with raids at Bharti and Haarsh’s residence.
Bharti Singh is a famous name in the television industry. She has hosted several shows and is seen currently on Kapil Sharma’s comedy show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
Bharti and Haarsh got married on December 3, 2017, in Goa. Several telly celebrities attended the starry wedding and reception of the cute couple.
The duo featured together on dance reality show Nach Baliye 8. They had also worked in a number of comedy shows which had Haarsh on board as the scriptwriter and Bharti as the performer.
Several Bollywood and television stars have come under the NCB scanner in drugs case so far. A few days back, Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal was summoned by the officials for questioning.
The ongoing NCB action is the outcome of the probe into the celebrity drugs angle that has emerged prominently after the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14, 2020.
