MUMBAI: Soon after actor Deepika Padukone reached the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) guest house in south Mumbai on Saturday to record her statement in drugs probe linked to film star Sushant Singh Rajput's death, her manager Karishma Prakash also arrived there for questioning, an official said.
He said that on Friday, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had questioned Prakash for around seven hours. "Prakash reached the NCB guest house just before 11 am," he said, adding that Deepika had arrived there at 9:50 am.
The NCB sources had earlier said that Prakash's WhatsApp chats included conversations about drugs with one 'D' and the central agency wanted to find out who this person was. Officials had said that the probe agency would confront Deepika and her manager to get more information.
The NCB began the inquiry after a drugs angle came to light in connection with Rajput's alleged suicide. 34-year-old Rajput was found hanging in his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14.
