Deepika Padukone's former talent manager questioned by NCB
Mumbai : Actor Deepika Padukone's former manager Karishma Prakash has been questioned by the NCB officials at their Mumbai office in a drugs case linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
Recently, the NCB had conducted searches at her residence and issued summons, after which officials had seized some material from her home.
On Tuesday, the court had given time to Ms Prakash to appear before the NCB without getting 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 Ms Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakulpreet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor.
Ms Prakash's name came up in some WhatsApp chats, following which she was questioned in September. At that time, Ms Padukone was also questioned after her name allegedly came up in some WhatsApp group linked to the drugs case and where both she and her manager were members.
