Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor reach NCB office in Mumbai, questioning underway

Since morning Bollywood actresses like, Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and now Shraddha Kapoor, who have been summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau, arrived at the DRDO guest house in Colaba, Mumbai for questioning in the drug nexus.

There were reports that Deepika's husband and actor Ranveer Singh had asked the NCB if he could be present during her questioning.

Speaking to IANS, criminal lawyer Jaikush Hoon said, "Deepika, Shraddha, Sara and Rakul have been summoned by the NCB for questioning pertaining to its ongoing investigation".

Deepika Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash and Rajput's former manager Shruti Modi were also questioned in the case on Friday. Deepika is set to appear before the NCB, along with Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor.

Sara Ali Khan And Shraddha Kapoor Have Also Been Summoned

The NCB started the Bollywood drug probe after the death of Rajput, 34, whose body was found at his Mumbai residence in June.

The federal agency had arrested actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, and some suspected drug peddlers, earlier. Also, during the interrogation, Deepika admitted to her drug chat with her manager, however, she said she doesn't consume drugs. She reached the NCB's zonal office in Ballard Estate around 1 pm. Singh's statement was recorded on Friday.

According to the sources no decision has been taken by NCB yet on the application. Zee News has accessed the WhatsApp chats of Shraddha Kapoor and KWAN employee Jaya Saha which show how CBD oil was sought by the actress and arranged by the latter. Rakul also added that she had lost touch with Rhea over the last few years. She was questioned for about four hours.

Earlier, Rakul was to record her statement on Thursday, but her team had claimed she had not received summons from the NCB. Meanwhile, Deepika's manager Karishma said that "Hash is not a drug".
