New Delhi: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested TV couple Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa for alleged possession and consumption of drugs. Earlier on Saturday, a team of NCB officials conducted raids at Bharti and Haarsh's Mumbai residence after receiving a tip-off from drug peddlers.

Thereafter, both actors were detained for a short while and formally summoned for further investigations to the NCB office where they reached there in separate vehicles.

Both Bharti and Harsh are well-known comedians, television personalities producing or hosting programmes, besides appearing in reality shows like 'Khatron Ka Khiladi', 'The Kapil Sharma Show'.
