NCB raises objection on Bharti Singh-Haarsh Limbachiyaa's bail in drugs case, calls it a ‘dangerous signal’ to society

The Narcotics Control Bureau raided the house of ace comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa in Mumbai's Andheri last year in the most of November and recovered cannabis in 'small quantity'. After which the duo got arrested but was given bail soon after. Now, as per the latest reports the NCB has expressed its displeasure over their bail and told a sessions court that the magistrate court set a 'dangerous signal in society' with this move. NCB told the magistrate court, 'The inability of the SPP to attend court was informed to the court. Despite that, the magistrate court went ahead with the bail order without hearing the prosecution. The prosecution should have been granted an opportunity.' While calling Bharti and Haarsh 'high profile offenders', NCB further added, 'High profile offenders can be spared easily at the cost of divine establishment principles, without hearing the prosecution side. This will create an anarchic situation in society. Such orders will prompt the peddlers to attack NCB with more vigour.' Previously, in the month of December, the Narcotics Control Bureau had even approached the special court under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act,1985, seeking the cancellation of comedienne Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa's bail. The NCB had also demanded custodial interrogation of the couple.
