The Narcotics Control Bureau is pulling out all stops in probing the nexus of the drug in Bollywood. Right from interrogating Rhea Chakraborty to Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor, most of the Bollywood celebs have come under the scanner and the latest one who is under scrutiny is actor Arjun Rampal. The actor on Friday was summoned by NCB after it saw a link between Gabriella Demetriades' brother Agisilaos Demetriades and drugs. Earlier, Gabriella was summoned and was interrogated for six hours, after which she was called for a second round of interrogation while reportedly, Arjun Rampal who appeared before them yesterday was grilled for eight hours. Now, the latest update in this suggests that NCB officials have said that Arjun Rampal has asserted that he will cooperate and make himself present whenever it is needed.
Times Of India carried the statement of NCB official Sameer Wankhede who was quoted saying, "the investigation is open and he has promised to cooperate and will make himself present when needed in the case.'' He further added, "the investigation is open and we have six months to file the complaint and if needed he will be called by us." After Agisilaos Demetriades was arrested by NCB, an Australian national identified as Paul Bartel, linked to Arjun Rampal, has also been arrested by the NCB officials. As per the India Today report, Paul is an architect by profession and resides in Bandra.
Meanwhile, NCB conducted a raid at Arjun Rampal’s house on November 9, after which, it was reported NCB found medicines that fall under the NDPS Act and asked the Rock On actor to present medical papers to justify the presence of the banned drug in his house.
