The NCB has been constantly probing into the drug angle in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s case. In the past few weeks, numerous names from Bollywood have been dragged in connection with the same. In the past two days, actresses Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh, and Sara Ali Khan appeared before the agency at the NCB office where their statements were recorded. Meanwhile, filmmaker Kshitij Prasad, who was earlier associated with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, has been remanded till October 3.

In the midst of all this, NCB chief Rakesh Asthana has arrived from Delhi t Mumbai. He will reportedly review the drug probe and the interrogation of all the individuals that happened in the past few days. He will also look into the progress of the Mumbai team in terms of their probe in the Bollywood drug nexus. Asthana will further plan the course of action in connection with the same. He will also decide who else shall be called for interrogation. 

As per a report by Republic TV, the agency is unhappy with the response of the actresses. Meanwhile, Asthana was also briefed on the two drug cases registered by the agency last month after the ED wrote to it regarding the alleged drug chats of a few celebs from Bollywood. Earlier, the NCB had arrested Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, Samuel Miranda, and Dipesh Sawant on charges of procuring drugs.

In its charge-sheet, the NCB says it has recovered 59 grams of weed and 5 grams of a dark brown substance suspected to be hash from three suspects so far. The quantity recovered is far less than the 1 kilo specified as ‘small quantity’ under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances or NDPS Act, 1985. As Suhas Gokhale, former chief of the Azad Maidan unit of Mumbai’s anti-narcotics cell, declared two days after Rhea’s arrest, “A sadhu’s chillum holds more marijuana than what Rhea is being convicted of.”

According to the boatman, drug parties were held at SSR's farmhouse. What does that make SSR? And was he underage like Kangana at the time? No. He was a grown up man.

Indians who suddenly woke to the drug menace in the country don't know that a sadhu’s chillum holds more marijuana than what was caught on the peddler by NCB. And why would NCB catch Sadhus at Kumbh Melas which are the biggest public marijuana parties in the world? NCB has been given the brief to drag this as long as possible, never mind the consequences. NCB is losing all credibility, but who cares. Bihar elections are more important than tons of drugs that are slipping from under NCB's radar in the rest of the country. As long as 59 grams of weed & 5 grams of hash (still disputed & not proven) can keep Indians diverted, this farce will continue.

due the delay there is a feeling that CBI is also going on the path of Mumbai police. Does it mean that all agencies & governments have surrendered to the Murderers & Bollywood Mafias ?

FYI it's very easy to put the blame on the dead. Who is going to question it. Testifying against a dead man is no proof at all. It's just blame shifting. Bring to the media and his fans some proof of text messages or drug chats or voice message where Ssr is trying to procure drugs for himself. Till then I'm not believeing anyone .. Proof is what matters not what the ppl with no credibility have to say

I m appalled by the way some pple are justifying consuming drugs is okay ..God forbid it should not happen to anyone’s family , what a family goes through when their kids are involved in drugs and yes smoking is injurious to health ... just Bec it has been legalised doesn’t mean it’s cool nd by your kind information films show taking cigarette is macho I seriously condemn it . Where our society is heading to ? You know exactly that is the point films actors have a great influence in society esp youngsters if they consume it they must be condemned Nd pple who are saying why after bollywoodthis is the reason it’s very very serious . When they can get so much fame no one questions why only Bollywood then why not now in case drugs nexus is proved wait till then but if it proved we should strongly condemn it as a society Nd shun smoking Nd drinking as well . It must not be shown in films youngsters are greatly influenced by it. It’s our duty to save our future Generations Nd India .. world at large

If NCB chief is really honest & have guts to stop the menace of drug abuse, then instead of wasting time behind small peddlers & consumers, he & his team should focus on disrupting the supply chain which targets young college kids, poor hungry kids at railway stations & corporate world relying under work pressure. But, they won't/can't as that will dismantle the high-n-mighty in power. So, they should just stop getting limelight for this farce going on

This man is a crook. What happened to the investigation that was being carried out on him by his ex partner? He was dismissed from the CBI for taking bribes, amongst other things. Just an FYI for people that think the NCB is fair and free of corruption, IT'S NOT.

It is obvious that Sara who was in a romantic intimate relationship with Sushant chose to just blame him for her wrong doings. She is immoral and has not integrity. I hope her untalented career tanks. Shraddha you're not the sweetheart you present yourself as. and Deppika you are cheapika. brainless talentless gigantic pathitic human. and Rakul who ever the hell you are i hope your endorsements. finances and career tank and same for the other 3

Just bcz the truth is not according to what u wanted, doesn't mean it's not true. If they r giving false statements, NCB had all rights to cross question including checking their phones. Do u think NCB is that dumb? U continue ur hate, whereas, these ladies go on becoming further successful

Why so much hate for people you don't know? Introspect.

Consuming drugs is illegal . Yes we want justice for Sushant but if in course of investigation something illegal is revealed that is also justice for him . God Wants to disclose that think from that view . Until nd unless someone is proved guilty we must not defame but if drugs are being consumed it’s a very very serious issue . What will happen to this generation esp kids who come from small towns they have talent skills Nd here some pple exploit them as they are young and they have to give in ... you know this can lead to depression .., no matter they are your favourite actor wtsoever in case they consume it or ....... it must be condemned . After all at certain point the main point is our conscience which knows what is right or wrong Nd I m repeating it again if they have not frame anyone before that

Please understand that alcohol is also a drug. Even though marijuana is classified as a drug, it a LOT less harmful than alcohol, cigarettes, or hard drugs like cocaine. Also, drug use does not equal drug addict. One can engage in recreational drug use and not be a drug addict.

I wish people (especially boomers and generation X) would learn more about marijuana. Not condoning drugs or drug use, but please understand that alcohol is also a drug, and in the grand scheme of things, marijuana is a lot less harmful and toxic than alcohol or cigarettes.
