Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi, ex-talent manager Jaya Saha summoned in drug case

National Investigative Agency has summoned Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi and former talent manager Jaya Saha in the drug case.

Now actors Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan may be called for questioning this week in the widening drugs probe linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death investigations, sources say. Their names reportedly came up during the questioning of actor Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested on September 9 on charges of organizing drugs for her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput.

Sources say the Narcotics Control Bureau may put out summons to these actors later this week in connection with a case registered by the federal agency based on alleged WhatsApp messages retrieved from Rhea Chakraborty’s mobile phone. The agency had registered a second case based on 59 grams of marijuana seized from alleged drug dealers. Besides Rhea Chakraborty, the others arrested earlier this month were her brother Showik Chakraborty, two employees of Sushant Singh Rajput and alleged drug dealers who have been linked to Bollywood.
