Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades reaches NCB office for questioning

Gabriella Demetriades, the girlfriend of Arjun Rampal, reached the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office on Wednesday morning for questioning in connection with a drug-related case. Arjun has also been summoned by the narcotics agency, after his residence was raised on Monday. Some electronic gadgets were seized and his driver was questioned as well.

Last month, Gabriella’s brother Agisilaos Demetriades was arrested by the NCB at a resort in Lonavala, where he was staying with his fiancée. He was allegedly in touch with drug peddlers who supplied drugs to Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik and others arrested in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.

An NCB officer said that 0.8 gram black colour sticky substance purported to be charas was recovered from him. Alprazolam tablets were also found in a search at his residence in Khar.

“Demetriades was dealing in a variety of drugs. Electronic evidence showed that he was in touch with Dipesh Sawant and Samuel Miranda, who are linked with accused Rhea and Showik Chakraborty,” an officer told Hindustan Times.

Over the last few months, the NCB has cracked down on the use of drugs in Bollywood. Rhea was arrested for allegedly procuring drugs for Sushant and granted bail after spending nearly a month in Byculla jail. Top stars including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh were asked to join the investigation and their phones were seized.

Earlier, Kangana Ranaut had called Bollywood a ‘gutter’ and claimed that 99% people engaged in the use of drugs. In September, Jaya Bachchan objected to the depiction of the film industry as a bed of vice and said in her speech in Parliament, “People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that the government tells such people not to use this kind of language.”

“Just because there are some people, you can’t tarnish the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame,” she added, referring to Ravi Kishan’s comments about the film industry’s ‘drug addiction’.
