Mumbai/IBNS: Leading Hindi film actress Deepika Padukone's manager has been summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with the probe into drug angle surrounding the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, media reports said.

Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash and the CEO of the company in which she is employed has been summoned by the NCB as the probe agency is widening its probe into the alleged Bollywood-drug nexus.

Apart from the two, Rajput's manager Shruti Modi and former talent manager Jaya Saha have also been summoned.

The NCB has so far arrested at least a dozen people including Rajput's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, the late actor's household staff Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant.

NCB is the third central agency to join the probe into the death of Sushant, after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The NCB got into action after the ED came across chats pertaining to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

Rajput was found dead at his own flat in Mumbai's Bandra on Jun 14.
