Indian comedian Bharti Singh has been arrested after cannabis was found during a raid on her home.

BBC News report that India’s Narcotics Control Bureau says 86.5g of the drug was found in the house she shares with husband, screenwriter Haarsh Limbachiyaa.

The pair, who co-host the reality show India's Best Dancer, were taken in for questioning.

The raid was part of an investigation into allegations of illegal drug use in the entertainment industry.

The investigation emerged from a high-profile inquiry into the death of the actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June and has led to multiple raids on figures from the TV and film world.

Rajput was found dead in his flat in Mumbai on 14 June. Police at the time said he had killed himself.
