Now, Karan Johar on NCB's radar in drugs case probe
Mumbai : Filmmaker Karan Johar has now come on NCB's radar for one more time after a complained filed by Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a Shiromani Akali Dal leader against the viral party video that was made at his residence in June last year.
Karan Johar has been sent a legal notice and not a summon over the video in question. NCB has asked him to file a reply by Friday.
A report in Mid-Day mentioned that the NCB acted on the complaint that Sirsa lodged with Maharashtra zonal unit and asked the filmmaker to ‘explain’ the video.
The politician has alleged that the actors seen in the video are consuming drugs at Karan Johar's residence.
“The NCB had received a complaint from Manjinder Singh Sirsa in this regard and was marked to the Maharashtra Zonal Unit. To check the veracity of the video the notice has been sent,” said an NCB official while confirming the news of the notice sent to the director.
The video had gone viral three months back when NCB was extensively searching for drugs connection to Bollywood amid investigations of Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
