NCB Summons Deepika’s Manager After Seizing Drugs From her Home
Karishma Prakash has been summoned on Wednesday, 28 October.
Deepika Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash has been summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau on Wednesday (28 October), sources in the NCB told The Quint. The sources also added that drugs have been seized from Prakash's house during an NCB raid.
NCB officials told Mumbai Mirror that Prakash is 'untraceable'. "Our team went to summon Karishma Prakash to join the investigation on Tuesday, but she is not traceable. We pasted a copy of the summons at her residence and have asked her to record the statement on Wednesday (28 October)", an NCB official told the publication. The official added investigations have revealed that Prakash was in touch with alleged drug peddlers arrested by the NCB and thus she has been summoned.
As per a report by The Indian Express, 1.7 grams of charas and at least two bottles of CBD oil were found at Prakash's residence.
Karishma Prakash had been questioned earlier by the probe agency that is investigating alleged use of drugs in Bollywood.
Actors Rakul Preet Singh, Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor have been questioned by the agency last month in its drug probe linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
Deepika's name reportedly came up during the interrogation of Sushant's talent manager Jaya Saha, an employee of KWAN talent management company. Karishma Prakash is also associated with KWAN.
