Narcotics Control Bureau has suspended two of its investigating officers after they failed to appear before a Court in Mumbai during the hearing of bail pleas of comedian Bharti Singh and her husband in a drugs case. It was also hearing the anticipatory bail application of actor Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash in the case.
The two officers were conducting a probe into the drugs case in which Ms. Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiya were arrested last month and later granted bail by a Mumbai court.
An NCB official said as the role of the investigating officers has been found to be suspicious in both the cases, and an internal inquiry has been ordered which is being conducted by the NCB’s Mumbai zonal unit.
