Mumbai, September 26: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday conducted a thorough probe into the drug angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
Film actress Shraddha Kapoor has been interrogated that she used to consume cannabidiol (CBD oil) or marijuana.
Similarly, Sara Ali Khan has accepted the idea of cigarette smoking. But all three have refused to take drugs.
The NCB Deputy Director Ashok Jain said that these actresses have not been called for re-investigation. NCB is going to review the inquiry made today.
The NCB started a thorough investigation as soon as there was a hint of drug angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
The NCB has so far arrested 20 accused including film actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty after the revelations of drug peddlers in this case.
However, Rhea Chakraborty and Showik are behind bars due to NCB’s strict action.
On the basis of Rhea’s statement in this case and inputs received from the manager of KWAN Talent Company Jaya Saha, NCB called film actress Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor for questioning today.
The NCB made a deep inquiry for 5 and half hours with Deepika, 5 hours from Sara Ali khan and 6 hours from Shraddha Kapoor.
Meanwhile, Deepika admitted the WhatsApp drug chat, but said that she never consumed drugs.
Regarding the use of the word ‘Maal’ in the chat, Deepika said that it was for cigarettes.
Similarly, Sara Ali Khan said that she had visited Sushant with his Lonavala farmhouse several times.
Similarly, she went to Thailand with Sushant. Sara Ali khan also admitted to smoking cigarettes, but refused to take drugs.
Sara told the NCB that she had been in a live-in-relationship with Sushant and he used to consume drugs during shooting.
