The Narcotics Control Bureau is zeroing in on an actor who was a supermodel, whom the agency believes is the ‘mastermind’ behind the alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus.
The ‘mastermind’ behind the alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus is an actor who has also been a supermodel in the past, Narcotics Control Bureau resources have told a news station. So far, actors like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, and Rakul Preet Singh have been questioned by the NCB.
Their names came up through the agency’s evaluation of celebrity Rhea Chakraborty’s relations to drug providers. Rhea was initially being investigated about her boyfriend, actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
CNN-News18 reported that three more celebrities are below the scanner, and also the alleged ‘mastermind’ is an actor who was a version. These three can be summoned from the NCB for questioning in the forthcoming days. The station reported that the NCB is trying to discover the identities of people who are providing narcotics to different folks in the film business, such as actors, directors, and producers. The alleged’mastermind,’ the report added, is the ‘big fish in the helm of affairs,’ and is supposedly’linked to all the regional peddlers, facilitating the con. That procurement of medication in the movie industry’. But, NCB is to comment or launch an announcement on this formally.
Formerly, Republic TV’s sources said that the upcoming stage of the investigation is expected to last a month and will involve some of Bollywood’s greatest names.
Rhea’s attorney, Satish Maneshinde, said in a TV interview that she hadn’t implicated any celebrity during her interrogations. He advised CNN-News18, “Rhea Chakraborty has not named anyone in her announcement. If NCB or anyone is announcing that she’s leaked, it is completely untrue. There’s not any thread of evidence that suggests that Rhea Chakraborty had named anybody apart from what Sushant Singh Rajput had consumed his life when she was with him.”
The NCB had launched an investigation into the drugs case after receiving official communication in the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which was investigating the money trail related to Sushant’s death case. Rhea has said that Sushant used to consume drugs within her bail hearing and would ask those near him to secure them.
