How Deepika and Shraddha’s name emerged

Earlier Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash was questioned on Friday and was again questioned on Saturday. Earlier Rakul Preet Singh was questioned for four hours.

Both Rakul and Karishma were questioned about the contents of WhatsApp chat which allegedly talked of buying marijuana for consumption.

The NCB had found that Karishma’s WhatsApp chats included conversations about drugs with one ‘D’ and it wants to find out who this person is.

What Rhea told about Sara and Rakul

Deepika Padukone, Sara and Shraddha’s name emerged after NCB questioned actor Rhea Chakraborty in connection with the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai home on June 14.  

Media reports said Chakraborty told NCB about Sara and Rakul. Earlier Chakraborty’s bail petition in the Bombay High Court had said Sushant developed a drug habit while shooting the film Kedarnath in which Sara was his co-star.

Deepika and Shraddha’s name emerged after their chats were found on the phone of Jaya Saha, Sushant Singh Rajput’s talent manager. Saha has also been questioned by the drug probe agency.

Meanwhile, Sushant’s family has alleged that the NCB probe was going the Mumbai police way and it was an effort to get attention by calling big names.
