The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), India, who are probing the Bollywood drug nexus linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, has issued summons to actresses Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor, reports India Today. 

They have also called in Deepika’s manager Karishma, designer Simone Khambatta, and Sushant Singh Rajput’s manager Shruti Modi for questioning.

While Padukone has been summoned on September 25, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan have been summoned on September 26 by NCB.

Karishma has been interrogated by the NCB, along with Kwan employee and Sushant’s former talent manager Jaya Saha. According to NCB sources, the agency has also acquired chats between Jaya Saha and Karishma in which they were discussing drugs.

Deepika’s WhatsApp chats with Karishma were also retrieved by the NCB in which the two were seen discussing drugs. Karishma works with Jaya Saha. Earlier, Jaya’s chats with Rhea Chakraborty about CBD oil were also retrieved by NCB.

Rhea, in her statement to the NCB, had confessed that she would party with Sara, Shraddha, Rakul and Sushant at the actor’s Lonavala farmhouse.

Earlier, India Today had revealed that a boatman told the NCB that late actor Sushant used to party at his Lonavala farmhouse. In his statement to the NCB, the boatman, Jagdish Das, had claimed that the farmhouse was a party destination for Sushant, his core team, and Bollywood friends like Rhea, Sara, Shraddha, and arrested drug-peddling suspect Zaid Vilatra, among others. The boatman also alleged that ganja and liquor were common in their island parties.

The NCB had arrested Rhea on September 8.
