A Mumbai court on Monday granted bail to TV couple Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa in the drugs case. They were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) over the weekend and sent to 14-day judicial custody on Sunday. Their bail applications were heard yesterday. â€œCharges of consumption of drugs have been invoked against them,â€ said Sameer Wankhede, Zonal Director of the NCB, Mumbai. Earlier yesterday, the NCB filed its replies on Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa's bail pleas. Acting on a tip-off, the NCB on Saturday conducted search at Bharti Singhâ€™s office and residence as part of its probe into the alleged drug use in the entertainment industry. â€œBharti Singhâ€™s name had cropped up during the interrogation of a drug peddler,â€ an official said. Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa were booked under sections 20(b)(ii)(A) (involves small quantity of drugs) and 8(c) (possession of drugs) and 27 (consumption of drugs) of the NDPS Act.
