The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has issued summons to celebrities Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shradhha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh in a drug case related to Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
KPS Malhotra, deputy director, NCB confirmed the development.
The agency on Tuesday questioned the Mumbai-based KWAN Talent Management Agency’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dhruv Chitgopekar and talent manager Jaya Saha.
The agency had summoned Chitgopekar and Karishma Prakash, also employed with KWAN, who was handling actor Deepika Padukone’s account. Prakash was not able to reach NCB office owing to her health.
Under the scanner are some incriminating chats, in which drugs were allegedly discussed. The chats naming Deepika are from October 2017, in which the sender, believed to be ‘Deepika Padukone’ is asking for 'maal' from 'K', who replies that she has it, but at home. The agency believes ‘K’ to be Karishma Prakash. The chats further discuss how the contraband could be delivered and Deepika is asking for 'hash' and 'not weed'. The authenticity of the chats is being investigated by the agency.
The other celebrities are also under scanner over chats investigated by the agency.
