Days after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) questioned Deepika Padukone in relation to the Sushant Singh Rajpur death case, NCB today raided the Versova residence of Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash, where it claimed to have found 1.7 grams of charas and at least two bottles of cannabis (CBD) oil.
Prakash, to note, was earlier cleared by NCB in connection with the FIR that had been registered against her in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
“Prakash’s name cropped up during the questioning of one of the paddlers arrested by us in the case in which we are looking to bust drug networks around Bollywood, Based on the information, we raided her residence today. We found 1.7 grams of charas and at least two bottles of CBD oil,” said an NCB official.
The official goes on to add that the Prakash was not at her home during the raid and the process was carried out in the presence of her acquaintances. “We have called her for questioning tomorrow to NCB, however, her phone has been switched off and we do not know where she is,” an official said.
The official added that that Prakash has surely broken the law and she would be given a chance to defend herself. But so far, the NCB says, there is nothing linking Deepika to the case.
Weeks ago, Deepika and Karishma were questioned after NCB alleged that it has found chats in Sushant Singh Rajput’s former manager Jaya Saha’s phone naming Deepika and Karishma in which narcotics were discussed.
Padukone, in her statement, told the police that the discussions were not about narcotics but code words for cigarettes.
