The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigating the alleged drug nexus of Bollywood, following actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, has now issued summons to the staff of KWAN Talent Manager according to the latest by Republic. This development comes after actor Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash went ‘untraceable’. Reportedly, the NCB raided Karishma’s house last month and found illegal Narcotics substances, during their search. As per the reports, she was not present during the search, and it took place in front of her acquaintances. The agency also stuck summon notices outside Prakash’s home, which were evaded multiple times.
According to the latest report, the employees who were part of the WhatsApp group that discussed the procurement of drugs are likely to come under the NCB scanner. While some staff members are likely to be summoned, as per an IANS report, an official said that it is ‘not verified’ if the staff has been called for questioning.
Meanwhile, the official in the report revealed that it is true that Karishma Prakash is untraceable after she was issued summons. She was asked to appear before the NCB on October 27. Earlier, many KWAN employees were questioned by the NCB. The names included talent managers Karishma Prakash, Jaya Saha, and founding partner Dhruv Chitgopekar.
The NCB had seized 1.7 grams of hashish and CBD oil from Karishma Prakash’s Versova residence during the raid. Padukone’s manager recently filed an anticipatory bail before the special NDPS court on Saturday. This is not the first time that Prakash was summoned by the NCB. She was questioned with actor Deepika Padukone earlier. Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput Death: Deepika Padukone’s Manager Moves Special NDPS Court To Seek Anticipatory Bail-REPORT
