Is Karan Johar’s alleged ‘drug party’ linked to Sushant Singh Rajput’s case? NCB finally clarifies
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) interrogated Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor recently in the drugs-related probe connected to Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case. The statement of all these actresses have been recorded and according to the latest reports, their phones have been seized for further investigation.
The agency, reacting on the rumours of links between Karan Johar‘s alleged ‘drug party’ and Bollywood drug nexus, has said that there’s no connection between the two.
Last year, Karan Johar had shared a video of his star-studded house party which was attended by Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Varun Dhawan, Shahid Kapoor to name a few. However soon Karan was accused of hosting a drug party. In fact, a case has also been filed by Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa demanding an investigation of the video. Karan has denied all the allegations of hosting a drug party and called the speculations as ‘false, baseless and malicious’.
Mutha Ashok Jain, NCB South-Western Region Deputy Director-General, addressing the media last night said that there’s no connection between Karan Johar’s party with Sushant’s case and that no fresh summons have been issued to any celebs. Thereby Jain put the rumours of Karan receiving a summon anytime soon to rest.
Meanwhile, yesterday NCB arrested Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions’ former executive Kshitij Ravi Prasad after almost 24 hours of interrogation. Also, Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty continues to remain in judicial custody.
