Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash is being questioned at the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office in Mumbai in a drugs case linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
The NCB had conducted searches at a property linked to her and issued summons to her, after which officials had seized some material from her home.
Prakash was on Tuesday given time by a court in Mumbai to appear before the anti-drugs agency without being arrested. She had applied for anticipatory bail, after which the special court gave her interim relief till November 7, which means that she can’t be arrested till November 7.
Karishma Prakash had earlier missed summons from the anti-drugs agency and the NCB had said she was untraceable.
The NCB is investigating a drugs case linked to the film industry and has questioned several actors like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakulpreet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor.
For the uninitiated, the probe started after the Enforcement Directorate handed over alleged “drug chats” that the agency said was recovered from the phone of actor Rhea Chakraborty, who had also been questioned by the Enforcement Directorate.
