Mumbai: A special Mumbai court granted bail to comedian Bharti Singh and husband Harsh Limbachiya in connection with the seizure of ganja from their residence.

The duo was caught with marijuana in their home during a raid by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and was remanded to judicial custody till December 4.

Bharti (36) and Haarsh (33) are among the leading couples in India’s TV industry and are currently hosting India’s Best Dancer on Sony Entertainment Television.

The arrest of the couple by NCB was part of the probe to unravel the entertainment industry-drug cartel nexus.

Among the celebrities questioned earlier include Arjun Rampal, Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan.

The NCB has been carrying out two investigations — one into the drug angle vis-à-vis Sushant Singh Rajput and the other the larger Bollywood-drug cartel nexus.

Nearly 25 persons — including Sushant’s live-in partner Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik — were arrested. Subsequently, Rhea was granted conditional bail by the Bombay High Court.
