NCB interrogates Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday questioned Bollywood divas Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor for several hours in a drugs case in connection with the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Besides the three actors, the NCB also questioned Deepika's former manager Karishma Prakash. According to NCB sources, Deepika and Karishma were "evasive" on alleged procurement of drugs as was indicated in an alleged chat of October 2017.

Karishma was interrogated by the NCB on Friday as well and was asked about the WhatsApp chat in which the Bajirao Mastani actress can be seen asking for 'hash' from her. Karishma confessed that Deepika was the admin of the WhatsApp group with her, Jaya Saha and Deepika as the members.

On the other hand, Sara Ali Khan's name surfaced in the drugs probe after actress Rhea Chakraborty allegedly named her and said that she used to consume drugs along with her and Sushant. Sara also dated the late actor during the shoot of her first film Kedarnath. Shraddha Kapoor's name was given by the caretaker of Sushant's Lonavala Farmhouse, who claimed that Shraddha used to accompany the late actor to parties in the farmhouse named 'Hang Out.'
