This is the second celebrity arrest by the NCB in the alleged Bollywood drug case after they arrested Rhea Chakraborty in the same case and sent her to the Byculla jail in September for procuring a small quantity of marijuana. Now out on bail, Rhea was accused by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s family members of abetting his alleged suicide after which the NCB started investigating the case with a separate angle and recovered old WhatsApp chats. It was in these chats that several celebrity names emerged and the agency moved their focus from the SSR death case to the alleged Bollywood drug nexus case.
After their medical test today, both Bharti and Haarsh will be produced before the NDPS court.
