Television actor Preetika Chauhan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Mumbai on Sunday for alleged possession of drugs. She was granted bail by a local court on Thursday. The NCB reportedly registered two cases and made six arrests, one of them being Chauhan. The officials recovered 99 grams of ganja from her.

While releasing her on a provisional cash bail of Rs 15,000, the court declared, “Accused prayed for grant of bail on the ground that she is innocent and possession is of small quantity. She is a resident of Mumbai and will not abscond”.

Who is Preetika Chauhan? Here are ten things to know about the television actress:

  1. 30-year-old Chauhan was arrested while buying drugs in Versova area of the city. At  the same time, a Tanzanian national was caught with cocaine from South Mumbai.
  2. Preetika Chauhan is a well-known television personality, who has worked in several television serials such as Maa Vaishnodevi.
  3. Chauhan hails from Karsog in Himachal Pradesh and has a B.Tech degree.
  4.  In her social media bio, she describes herself as a “Mountain girl”.
  5. In her last Instagram post two weeks back, Chauhan wrote how it is not about “who hurt you and broke you down” but it is about “who was there for you and made you smile again.”
  6. She made her acting debut with the film Jhamela in 2016.
  7. Apart from Vaishnodevi, she also played goddess Shachi in Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanumaan.
