Fashion Designer Simone Khambatta on Thursday visited Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office in Mumbai for interrogation in connection with a drug case. Even Shruti Modi who has been questioned earlier visited the agency’s office too.
The NCB yesterday summoned Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shradha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh, Simone Khambatta and celebrity manager Shruti Modi in connection with a drugs case related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Karishma Prakash, who works at KWAN talent agency, has also been summoned this week. Moreover, KWAN CEO Dhruv Chitgopekar and film producer Madhu Mantena appeared before the NCB for questioning in the matter.
Shruti Modi is the former business manager of Sushant Singh Rajput and has been questioned by the NCB in the case in the past as well.
Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court is slated to hear on Thursday the bail plea of Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and others in the drugs case. Earlier, a special Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances court had refused to grant bail to the accused in the case.
The NCB had launched an investigation after it received official communication from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), in which there were various chats related to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation.
The ED had on July 31 registered an Enforcement Case Information Report in the late actor’s death case after a First Information Report was filed by Rajput’s father KK Singh against Rhea Chakraborty in Bihar on July 28.
Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai residence on June 14.
