The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had been probing the drug angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, after which the agency has also been investigating an alleged drug nexus in Bollywood. Several names came to light as NCB continued with the probe, and Deepika Padukone’s former manager Karishma Prakash’s name was one of them. Karishma, who has now resigned from KWAN talent agency, appeared before the NCB two times in a row on Wednesday and Thursday. Now, according to ANI, Karishma Prakash has been summoned by the agency once again on November 10.
ANI tweeted, “Deepika Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash summoned on Tuesday, 10th November for questioning: Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).” Her summon came hours after Bollywood producer Firoz Nadiadwala was summoned for questioning by the NCB. A few days ago, Karishma’s house was raided by the NCB officials and they reportedly seized some drugs from her place. Fearing arrest, Karishma had applied for an anticipatory bail in Special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court.
Times Of India reported that the court adjourned the anticipatory bail plea of Karishma Prakash to November 10.

Meanwhile, ANI reported that a summon was issued to film producer Firoz Nadiadwala. This came after India Today reported that the producer’s house had been raided. His wife Shabana Saeed was taken to the NCB for questioning, and her statement was recorded. She was later arrested by the officials, reported India Today.
