October 28 : The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is investigating the drug nexus between the peddlers and Bollywood celebrities, has raided Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash’s residence and seized small quantity of drugs. The central agency has summoned Karishma today for grilling. The alleged drug nexus between peddlers and Bollywood celebrities came to light after Sushant Singh Rajput's death case was being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate.

Karishma was not at home when the Mumbai branch of the NCB raided her Versova residence. NCB seized two types of drugs from her residence. Karishma’s name had cropped up during the interrogation of alleged drug peddlers arrested by the NCB in FIR number 16/20. Earlier, the agency had recorded statements of Karishma and Deepika in FIR number 15/20 linked to Sushant’s death. The NCB reportedly claimed that Karishma was in regular touch with drug peddlers. NCB sources reportedly stated that Karishma was in touch with one of the drug peddlers, who is already in the agency’s custody.

NCB has reportedly said that Karishma was not at her residence when the raid was conducted. Her phone was also switched off and hence she was untraceable on Tuesday. The NCB has pasted the summon notice on her residence door and asked her to be present for questioning.

Karishma works at the Kwan Talent Management Agency, along with Jaya Saha, the manager of Rhea Chakraborty, and Shruti Modi, Sushant Singh Rajput's ex-manager. Prakash’s came cropped up the first time when the agency accessed alleged WhatsApp chats between her and Deepika, and both were allegedly discussing drugs.

In September, Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh were questioned by the NCB in the drugs-related case linked to the late actor Sushant. The Central agency has so far arrested 23 people in the drug case linked to the late actor’s death case.
