Mumbai: Actor Arjun Rampal’s home in Mumbai is being searched by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is investigating drugs allegations linked to the film industry, sources said on Monday.
Yesterday, Bollywood producer Firoz Nadiadwala’s wife was arrested by the anti-drugs agency after some 10 grams of marijuana was allegedly found at their Mumbai home in raids.
NCB officer Sameer Wankhede told news agency PTI that Firoz Nadiadwala was summoned but did not appear.
The Nadiadwalas were searched following the arrest of an alleged drug peddler recently.
The bureau’s probe started earlier this year when, during investigations into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in June, WhatsApp chats involving drugs were found on the phone of his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, also an actor.
Subsequently, Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, two of Sushant Singh Rajput’s employees and a few others were arrested for allegedly organizing drugs for the 34-year-old actor who was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14.
