The Narcotics Control Bureau (NBC) on Tuesday seized drugs from the residence of Karishma Prakash, the manager for actress Deepika Padukone. The agency made the finding in a raid.
NCB has seized nearly 1.8 gms of Hashish from her residence. Prakash was summoned by the central investigative agency earlier.
Earlier in September, media outlets had reported drug chats between Deepika Padukone and Karishma Prakash. In the chats, Deepika was seen asking her manager for ‘maal’ and ‘hash,’ to which the latter had replied that she has it home.
The chats had emerged were a part of a group called ‘DP+Ka+KWAN’, where Deepika Padukone was the admin. The group was formed by Jaya Saha and its admins were Deepika Padukone and Karishma Prakash. Other members include Vijay Subramaniam, Anirban Das, Producer Madhu Mantena, KWAN CEO Dhruv Chitgopekar among many others.
On September 26, Deepika Padukone was interrogated by the NCB for her alleged role in drug procuring. The Bollywood actor was grilled by the investigative agency for almost 5 hours after which her mobile phone was seized and sent to Directorate of Forensic Sciences (DFS) in Gandhinagar, in an attempt to examine deleted chats and videos.
