Following reports that Deepika’s husband Ranveer Singh had asked the NCB if he could be present during her interrogation, the agency clarified that it had not receive any such request.
Deepika’s manager Karishma Prakash, who was interrogated for about seven hours yesterday, also arrived for another round of probe. On Friday, the agency also questioned actor Rakul Preet Singh and Dharma Productions’ executive producer Kshitij Ravi in connection with the case. Rakul was questioned for about four hours.
According to the NCB, actor Rhea Chakraborty, who has been arrested in connection with the case, had mentioned the names of Simone Khambatta, Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh during her interrogation between 6 and 9 September.
Deepika’s name, on the other hand, cropped up in some WhatsApp conversations purportedly between Prakash and one “D”, discussing drugs.
The NCB has registered two FIRs in connection with its drug case. The first FIR was registered on August 26 based on Rhea’s purported chats extracted from her cellphone by the Enforcement Directorate. Six persons, including Rhea, have been booked in the case.
The second FIR was registered suo motu by the NCB to “uproot the drug citadel in Bollywood”. All the arrests — 19 so far — have been made in the second case.
NCB Deputy Director (Operations) K P S Malhotra had earlier said that Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor will be questioned in connection to both the FIRs. “There are a few aspects of the cases that warrant examination of Sara and Shraddha. So, they will be examined in both cases that have common linkages,” he said.
