November 21, 2020: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday conducted a raid at comedian Bharti Singh's house in connection with the drug probe being carried out after Sushant Singh Rajput's death in June.

The NCB has summoned Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiyaa for questioning following the raid.

Reportedly, the couple has been accused of consuming banned substances.

The raids come amid an expanding probe - which began with inquiries into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June - into alleged drug use by members of the entertainment industry.

ANI's tweet read, "Narcotics Control Bureau conducts a raid at the residence of comedian Bharti Singh in Mumbai: NCB #Maharashtra."

Earlier this month actor Arjun Rampal's home was searched, and both he and his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades, were summoned for questioning.

Ms Demetriades was questioned over two days (for a total of 12 hours) while Mr Rampal was questioned for six hours last week. As he was leaving the agency's office in south Mumbai, he clarified that the substances found by the NCB at his residence were part of a prescription.
