Actor Arjun Rampal got to the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) Mumbai workplace at around 11 AM for questioning in an anti-drugs probe that started with inquiries into the death of star Sushant Singh Rajput in June. Mr Rampal, 47, had initially been summoned on Wednesday.
Mr Rampal will be questioned in connection with declared substance abuse in the Hindi film industry, an official of the agency told news firm PTI.
The actor’s house was browsed on Monday – after which summons had actually been provided – and his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades, was questioned for almost six hours each on Wednesday and Thursday. Ms Demetriades’ sibling, Agisialos Demetriades, has actually two times been arrested over declared links to anti-drugs cases.
Also on Monday, film producer Firoz Nadiadwala was summoned by the NCB. A day earlier his better half, Shabana Saeed, was apprehended after investigators allegedly discovered 10 grams of marijuana at their house in Mumbai’s Juhu throughout a raid.
The Nadiadwala residence had actually been searched following the arrest of drug peddler Wahid Abdul Kadir Shaikh in Andheri a couple of days previously. As the company tracked Shaikh’s clients, links to Ms Saeed, who allegedly purchased 10 grams of the contraband from him, emerged, the NCB stated.
Ms Saeed got bail yesterday.
Over the last two months top Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakulpreet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor have all been questioned by the NCB. The company has actually stated this belongs to its effort to decipher a network of supply of drugs to celebrities.
The drugs angle in Sushant Rajput’s death was flagged after texts about the purchase of banned compounds were found on the phone of his sweetheart Rhea Chakraborty, who is likewise an actor.
Ms Chakraborty, her bro Showik, two of Sushant Singh Rajput’s staff members and a few others were detained for supposedly arranging drugs for the 34- year-old star. After investing almost a month in jail, Ms Chakraborty was launched on bail last month.
The allegations have actually split the movie fraternity, with one section striking out at the vilification of the market. Numerous popular stars and filmmakers have actually been trolled over the allegations.
” I’ll be a liar if I state that this problem does not exist in our industry. It exists, much like every industry. But everyone in every profession is not associated with such issues. This is difficult,” actor Akshay Kumar stated in October.
