Actor Arjun Rampal's sister Komal Rampal has informed the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) that she is unable to appear before the agency.
Komal Rampal was summoned by NCB yesterday, in connection with a drugs case. However, her lawyer informed the agency of her inability to appear.
Komal is a 1994 Miss India finalist, ex-air hostess, and spa consultant.
She was summoned by the NCB days after her brother actor Arjun Rampal and his South-African partner Gabriella Demetriades were questioned in a drug-related case.
The NCB findings had revealed alleged discrepancies in a prescription of a tablet submitted by him to the agency probing a drug case.
Arjun Rampal had claimed that the medicines found in his home belonged to his dog and sister.
The agency is checking the authenticity of two prescriptions issued by two different doctors based in Delhi and Mumbai. The agency is probing if the prescription is a backdated one and if he has sourced it through a contact.
The statement of the Delhi based doctor has also been recorded before a magistrate under section 164 of the CrPC.
This has been done to avoid the possibility of the witness going back on the statements made to the agency.
As the NCB widened its probe into the drugs case, it arrested Gabriella's brother Agisilaos in October. He was later released on bail in December.
Ranked as an A-lister, Rampal has acted in several films like "Om Shanti Om", "Rock On!", "Pyaar, Ishq Aur Mohabbat", "Raajneeti", "Housefull", and other blockbusters.
