Karisma was questioned by the NCB for about seven hours on Wednesday.
- He had applied for bail in advance on Sunday, after which the special court granted him interim release from arrest till November.
The NCB today summoned Deepika’s former manager Karishma Prakash for questioning in a drug case. He was questioned for about seven hours on Wednesday. On Tuesday, a Mumbai court asked him to appear before the NCB. The special court granted him interim release from arrest until November after he was released on Sunday seeking bail in advance.
During the operation last month, the drug enforcement agency summoned him for questioning. This is because the agency received some hashish and CBD oil from the publishing house. According to NCB sources, the first revelation appeared before the NCB on the first day and at that time he was asked how he came to CBD oil and hashish.
Deepika has nothing to do with this investigation: Kwan
The source further said that the NCB also asked him the names of the drug users who were involved with him. Earlier in the day, Vijay Subramaniam, co-founder and CEO of Quan Talent Management Company, said in a statement, “Prakash immediately resigned on October 21 and it has been accepted.”
He said that now he has nothing to do with the agency or any artist including Deepika Padukone. An ongoing personal investigation is underway against Karisma Prakash. We urge media houses and journalists to keep this fact in mind when reporting on this issue.
Karisma’s statement has been recorded twice before
Earlier, the NCB had recorded a statement in September. Apart from Deepika, the NCB has questioned Bollywood actresses Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan in a drug-related case investigating Sushant’s death. The NCB also confiscated the phones of the three actresses and sent them to the forensic department for investigation.
The NCB filed a lawsuit at the request of the Director of Enforcement (ED), which in August discussed drugs on the basis of several alleged drug paraphernalia. Sushant was found dead on June 14 in his flat in Mumbai. The NCB, CBI and ED are investigating his death.
