Drug Probe: Rakul Preet Singh appears before NCB
Mumbai/IBNS: Indian actor Rakul Preet Singh on Friday appeared before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) as she has been summoned by the probe agency in connection with the drug angle related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash also reached the NCB office in Colaba, media reports said.
In a major turn of events in the drug probe, the NCB has summoned leading Hindi film actors Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor.
Meanwhile, designer Simone Khambatta was grilled by the NCB on Thursday in connection with the same case.
The NCB has so far arrested at least a dozen people including Rajput's actor girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, the late Bollywood star's household staff Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant.
NCB is the third central agency to join the probe into the death of Rajput, 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.
