The raid came a day after the NCB arrested Bollywood producer Firoz Nadiadwala’s wife Shabana Saeed after weed was allegedly found at their residence. While raiding Arjun’s residence, the NCB had seized electronic gadgets such as laptops, mobile phones, and tablets and even questioned the actor’s driver.
The ongoing NCB action is the outcome of the probe into the celebrity drugs angle that has emerged prominently after the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14. Besides another at least 20 persons, including actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, several narcotics suppliers, drug peddlers have been arrested while some Bollywood personalities have been questioned. Rhea, however, had obtained bail.
