On Saturday, NCB questioned Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, and Shraddha Kapoor related to the drug case that surfaced post the death of Sushant Singh Rajput . Deepika Padukone and Sara Ali Khan flew from Goa on Thursday for the interrogation that was going to be held in Mumbai. 

There was heavy security at both the Narcotics Control Bureau offices. Deepika Padukone was summoned to the guest house while the other two were asked to appear at the zonal office in Ballard Estate.

Earlier there was a news that Ranveer had made a special request to the NCB to allow him along with his wife Deepika as she at times gets anxiety attacks, but the officials confirmed that Ranveer made no such request.

Deepika’s business manager Karishma Prakash was interrogated the earlier day for seven hours and was called today while NCB interrogated Deepika. NCB confronted them face to face where Deepika agreed to be involved in a chat regarding drugs with her on October 28, 2017, and she was also an admin of a WhatsApp group called ‘DP+Ka+KWAN’.

The talent manager Jaya Saha had already been questioned and where Shraddha Kapoor’s name had surfaced through the chats. Yesterday, Shraddha was interrogated regarding the same and clarified that she has never consumed drugs. Sara Ali Khan also denied all claims regarding drug consumption, and she left the premises after recording her statements for about four and a half hours.

According to the Narcotics Control Bureau, Rhea Chakraborty, who has been detained in association with the case, had stated the names of Rakul Preet Singh, Simone Khambatta, and Sara Ali Khan during her questioning between September 6 and 9. At the same time, Deepika’s name cropped up in a WhatsApp group as “D” with her business manager regarding drugs.

No new summon has been issued on September 26. NCB has arrested more than 18 people.
