"I am fully cooperating with the investigation. I have nothing to do with drugs. The medicine found at my residence was prescribed. The prescription has been found and handed over," Rampal reportedly said.

Rampal also praised the NCB officers for "doing a good job" and added that he was fully supporting them, according to the report.

Arjun's partner Gabriella Demetriades was questioned by the probe agency on Wednesday and Thursday. The NCB is investigating alleged use of drugs in Bollywood following actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.

Sources had told The Quint that electronic gadgets had been seized from Arjun Rampal’s Mumbai residence during a search a few days back.

The NCB has also arrested an Australian architect Paul Bartel in a drug-related case. As per a report by mid-day, Bartel's name came up during the questioning of Agisilaos Demetriades, Gabriella's brother.
