Now, Deepika Padukone’s Name Crops Up in NCB’s Drug Probe
The agency has accessed the actress’ Whatsapp chats dating back to 2017 where the latter reportedly asked her manager for drugs
In the widening drugs probe by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), news sources have confirmed that the name ‘D’ that surfaced in drugs chat is Deepika Padukone. It is said that the actress asked for ‘hash, not weed’ in the chat with ‘K’. Both names – D and K surfaced in the WhatsApp drugs chat. Earlier, Shraddha Kapoor’s name also surfaced in the drugs chat. Besides Deepika Padukone, 90’s actress Namrata Shirodkar’s name has also cropped up in the same issue. The chats accessed are from 2017 and show Padukone asking for maal from ‘K’ who replies that she has it but at home.
Further, ‘K’ says that she can ask ‘Amit’ if she wants it, as “he is carrying.” Padukone also then clarifies that she needs “hash” and not “weed” as the two discuss logistics. Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash has been summoned by NCB for questioning on Tuesday (September 22). Prakash is Jaya Saha’s assistant, who also manages Padukone. Saha’s name surfaced in Rhea Chakraborty’s interrogation in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
