Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal has been summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday, 16 December, for a probe in connection with the drug case linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.

Here's the news

Earlier in November, the anti-drug agency had conducted raids at Rampal's residence in Mumbai. The agency seized gadgets like laptops, mobile phones, and tablets during the raid and also questioned the actor's driver.

A day before the raid at Rampal's house, the NCB had arrested producer Firoz Nadiadwala's wife Shabana Saeed after officials found 10 grams of ganja (marijuana) at their residence in suburban Juhu.

In October, NCB nabbed Arjun Rampal's partner Gabriella Demetriades' brother Agisilaos Demetriades from a resort at Lonavala in neighbouring Pune district in a drug-related case.

After conducting the raid, both Rampal and Demetriades were summoned by the NCB. On 12 November, Gabriella Demetriades was again summoned by the Bureau and was questioned by the agency officials for almost six hours.

Rampal too was also summoned again by the NCB zonal office on 13 November and was questioned in connection with the case related to the alleged use of drugs in the Hindi film industry.

According to a report by Times Now, Rampal said that he has nothing to do with drugs. He also said that he has submitted a valid prescription of tablets and medicines found at his residence during the NCB raid.

The actor also said that the NCB is asking him about those linked to the cases being investigated. Rampal said that he is cooperating with the agency.

The NCB initiated a probe into the alleged drug use in Bollywood after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput in June on the basis of WhatsApp chats involving drugs.
