According to NCB, actor Rhea Chakraborty had named the three women during her questioning by the agency between September 6 and 9. She is currently being held in custody until 6 October.
“Rakul Preet Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Simone Khambatta will be summoned this week,” NCB Deputy Director K P S Malhotra said. Officers said they are also likely to issue summons to another actor.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has made 19 arrests in relation to the FIR (First Incident Report) registered to “bust the drug network in Bollywood”. This FIR is separate from another registered against Rhea Chakraborty in relation to the chats that the Executive Directorate found on her cellphone where she was “discussing narcotics”.
The NCB drug-probe has been instituted in the wake of alleged drug related conversations that were found between Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda.
Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, Miranda, Sushant’s personal staff Dipesh Sawant and 16 other suspects have been arrested by the NCB drug probe thus far. Rhea Chakraborty is currently being held in custody until 6 October.
