New Delhi September 26th

Actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan are being questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a widening drugs probe linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput death investigation. Actor Deepika Padukone is being questioned at the Evelyn Guest House in Mumbai’s Colaba, where the Narcotics Control Bureau’s Special Investigation Team has set up a base. Actor Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor are at the NCB’s Ballard Estate office.

Ms Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash, who was questioned on Friday, has also reached the NCB office for questioning for the second day today. The NCB questioned Rakul Preet Singh and Karishma Prakash about the contents of WhatsApp chat which allegedly indicated marijuana was bought for consumption.

The escalating probe into Bollywood’s drugs links started with actor Rhea Chakraborty’s questioning, three months after Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai home on June 14.  The investigation, involving multiple agencies, has captivated the nation, throwing up almost daily twists and wild speculation and campaigns on social media.

It must be noted that the actors have not been named as accused in any drugs probe case, and are only being questioned. During her questioning before arrest on September 9, Rhea Chakraborty reportedly named stars, including Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh, in connection with drugs use. Her lawyer has denied this claim.

Sara Ali Khan was also Sushant Singh Rajput’s co-star in the film “Kedarnath”; Sushant Rajput developed the drugs habit while shooting the film, according to Rhea Chakraborty’s bail petition before the Bombay High Court. The names of Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor were found in WhatsApp chats on the phone of Jaya Saha, Sushant Singh Rajput’s talent manager and a top executive of talent firm Kwan.

Jaya Saha has also been questioned by the drug probe agency. Sushant Singh’s family through their Advocate Vikas Singh had aired their displeasure over the direction of the probe calling “the NCB probe too going in the same direction like Mumbai Police probe… calling big names for questioning just to get attention”.
