NCB summons to Deepika, Shraddha, Sara in drugs-related case linked to SSR death


Mumbai, Sep 23 (IANS): In a major development, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday said that it has summoned Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preeet Singh for questioning in a drug-related case.

A senior NCB official related to the probe told IANS, "Summons have been issued to Deepika, Sara, Shraddha and Rakul for questioning. "Besides four Bollywood actors, the NCB has also summoned fashion designer Simone Khambatta." However, the official did not share the date when these actors have been called for questioning.

The drug law enforcement agency has also summoned Deepika's manager Karishma Prakash for questioning. The development comes in the wake of the investigation into a drug-related case linked to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Sushant was found dead on June 14 at his Bandra flat.

The official said that the actors have been summoned after several alleged chats of them discussing drugs came to the fore during the investigation.

The NCB has registered a case on the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after it found alleged drug chats between Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, house manager Samuel Miranda.

Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sushant's personal staff Dipesh Sawant along with 16 other accused have been arrested by the NCB in the case so far.

Sara is the daughter of noted actor Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, while Shradhha is the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor. Deepika is the daughter of the badminton icon Prakash Padukone and is married to Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.

The official, however, denied that it has issued any summons to Dia Mirza. Earlier in the day, the NCB continued questioning Sushant's talent manager Jaya Saha for the third consecutive day.

Besides Saha, the NCB is also questioning Madhu Mantena Varma, a noted producer, who gave blockbusters such as 'Udta Punjab' and 'Ghajini'.

According to NCB sources, Varma is being confronted with Saha over alleged chats of them discussing drugs. NCB has also questioned Sushant's former manager Shruti Modi on a number of occassions.

Besides the NCB, the CBI and the ED are also probing the death case of Sushant.

    SSR was suicide because of DRUGS ! not in a state of depression nor the NEPOTISM !! as the beginning episode started which is utterly false and wanted to framing the people. Now the clouds are clear and paved the road to reach in a clear directions. SSR you nailed it and opened a new chapter of DRUG maniac to the world specifically in INDIA.

    Those who we worshiped as our mentor in silver screen but turned to be a DRUG MANIAC !! They should be banned from the INDUSTRY for 2 years at least on a moral ground.

    Salman Khan and KARAN to be interrogated in this regard which they can shed the light on the current on going probe.

    This is voluntarily invited by your so called non bjp govt by not doing fair and proper investigation in SSR death case. Your non bjp government is so corrupt which cannot handle one brave lady Kangana.

    This investigation has gone berserk, targeting only the film crowd. Is the world of politicians and their offspring any better? why not investigate them too? fear of those in power? how about those that sell the drugs - surely the cops are aware of the kingpins - what is stopping them from being hauled over the coals - political patronage? seems to be a plain case of bullying arising out of sheer jealousy.

    These names are given by a drug user aka rhea that's why they are questioning her. In fact a video has been viral too in which many Bollywood actors are present and are super high
