The NCB last month raided Rampal’s house in Bandra, Mumbai under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act and seized some electronic equipment and medicines. NCP also questioned Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades two days last month. Gabriella’s brother Agicillos Demetrides was arrested in October from a resort in Lonavla, the official said. He is accused of being in contact with drug traffickers. Rampal’s friend Paul Bartal has also been arrested by the NCB in a drug case.
Significantly, after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June, the NCB launched an investigation into the alleged use of narcotics in Bollywood on the basis of a narcotics WhatsApp chat. The central agency had earlier arrested Rajput’s girlfriend actress Riya Chakraborty, her brother Shouvik, some employees of the late actor and some others under sections of the NDPS Act. Riya Chakraborty and some other accused are currently out on bail.
