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.
Rhea Chakraborty was questioned for three days before her arrest on charges of arranging drugs for Sushant Rajput, and had reportedly named some stars in connection with drugs use. “During the preliminary investigation in the first case registered based on the retrieved WhatsApp messages of Rhea Chakraborty, few other actors name have come up including Sara Ali Khan and Shradda Kapoor. Both will be asked to join the investigation this week, summons will be issued soon,” an officer involved in the investigation told NDTV.
The drugs inquiry started after WhatsApp chats on Rhea Chakraborty’s phone revealed conversations on buying drugs for the actor. After multiple searches, the anti-drugs agency based their case on 59 grams of weed found on drug dealers allegedly known to Sushant Rajput. According to the agency, their questioning led them to Rhea Chakraborty and her brother.
