Veteran actor Arjun Rampal has landed under hot water as the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) conducted a raid at his residence in Mumbai.
His house has been raided a day after the brother of his girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades was arrested.
According to the international news source, the central drug law enforcement agency arrested the South African national after it was revealed that he was in touch with the drug peddlers arrested in the drug case.
The NCB has earlier summoned actors including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, and Shraddha Kapoor for a similar investigation. The Bureau has also raided film producer Firoz Nadiadwala and arrested his wife Shabana Saeed.
“A team of NCB officials intercepted one Shabana Saeed, wife of Firoz A Nadiadwala, from her home and searched her house in presence of two independent witnesses. This is a follow-up operation in connection with a case wherein a total of 717.1 grams of ganja, 74.1 gm charas, and 95.1 gm MD (commercial quantity) were seized, along with Rs 3,58,610 cash, and four people were arrested,” an official release issued by the NCB read.
On the other hand, the central probe agency had arrested former Dharma Productions executive producer Kshitij Ravi Prasad in connection with the drug case.
