Model Gabriella Demetraides was questioned for the second day on Thursday by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), in connection with the seizure of banned medicines from her Bandra home earlier this week.
Demetriades, who was questioned for over six hours on Wednesday and Thursday, denied having ever used or sold drugs, said an NCB officer. The official added that Demetriades claimed her partner, actor Arjun Rampal, has also never used drugs. Rampal has been issued a summons to the NCB’s office in Ballard Pier on Friday.
The search at the couple’s home on Tuesday followed the arrest in Andheri West last week of four drug peddlers and suppliers catering to clients working in the film and television industries.
Last week, the NCB also took Gabriella’s brother, South African national Agisilaos Demetriades, back into its custody, for his alleged involvement in the import of cocaine into India via courier.
