Mumbai, September 26: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has interrogated film actress Deepika Padukone for five and a half hours on Saturday in Mumbai in the investigation of the alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
But sources revealed that the NCB is not satisfied with Deepika’s replies, so they can call her again for further grilling.
The NCB’s interrogation of film actresses Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Priyanka Prakash continues in the same case. The NCB has recovered all their mobile phones.
The NCB probing the drugs links in the late actor Sushant Singh death case had first arrested film actress Rhea Chakraborty on Whatsapp chat basis.
After Rhea’s interrogation, the NCB questioned Jaya Saha, the manager of KWAN Talent Company, in this case.
However, Jaya Saha had revealed the names of Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor to the NCB.
Jaya Saha also gave a mobile chat related drug to the NCB on a round of evidence.
The administrator of this chat group was Deepika Padukone.
On Saturday, the NCB summoned Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Karisma Prakash to investigate after getting so much evidence.
According to sources, Deepika has admitted to the WhatsApp drug groups during questioning.
After which actress Deepika told the NCB that the word ‘Maal’ used in the chat does not mean drugs, she was referring to cigarettes.
Similarly, she has told the NCB officials that she never consumed drugs.
The NCB Deputy Director KPS Malhotra himself was present during the inquiry.
The NCB has asked Deepika dozens of questions but Deepika has not given satisfactory answers.
The NCB team is questioning the film actress Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Karishma Prakash.
Sara Ali Khan revealed that she was in a live-in relationship with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Also, Sara told NCB that she had gone to Thailand with Sushant and that he used to take drugs while shooting. NCB inquiries are still on.
