Sushant Singh Rajput's death case is, unfortunately, getting murkier by the day, due to the drug nexus angle that has shaken Bollywood and Telly world to its very core. While Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh were recently interrogated by the Narcotics Control Bureau, Karan Johar recently came under scanner for his 2019 alleged drug party.

According to a video by Times Now, giving some clarity on the ongoing investigation was Mutha Ashok Jain, Deputy Director-General, South-Western Region, NCB. When asked about KJo's party video being a possible key element in Sushant's case, Ashok clarified that the 2019 party has nothing do with this investigation. Ashok also revealed that Khitij Prasad has been placed under arrest after questioning while no fresh summons have been issued. More than 18 people have been arrested so far. 

Earlier, in a lengthy statement on Instagram, Karan issued a clarification stating that the allegations put on him were "completely baseless and false." 

"No narcotics substance was consumed in the party. I would like to unequivocally once again state that I do not consume narcotics and I do not promote or encourage consumption of any substance," Johar stated while adding, "Mr. Kshitij Ravi Prasad joined Dharmatic Entertainment (sister concern of Dharma Productions) in November 2019 as one of the executive producers on contract basis for a project which eventually did not materialise."

If it was a illegitimate drug party there would have been no video. It was supposed to be funny but Indians have no humor so it didn’t work.move on. Leave Sara, deepika, Shraddha and Rakul and Simone alone. This is all rubbish! Find the murder evidence or suicide evidence. And let’s move on times now and republican tv stop you rubbish, Please post

All of this is beyond ridiculous. Shush ant had bipolar disorder. 25% of all people afflicted with this mental disorder will attempt suicide at least once. He was trying to self medicate. The only mistake was that he did not try to get comprehensive psychological treatment. Deepika has been vocal about her battle with depression. She also tried to handle the disease on her own. The fault is that people in India have very little knowledge or understanding of mental disease. It can take up to 10 years for someone with bipolar disorder to find the right combination of medication and therapy. The sad part of this whole drama playing out obsessively on Indian tv, is that no one is addressing the issue of how mental disease goes hand in hand with addiction and often times suicide. So glad, that as someone who has bipolar disorder, I don’t live in India. Kangana the self appointed queen of all that is bad about Bollywood should just go away. Go anywhere, please just go. Your career in any entertainment industry in the world is done. This story will pass and you will fade into oblivion.

Thanx so much for expressing the truth without fear. Thank God you're not in India. I too suffered from depression for long. No one understands us here. People like Kangana are HIV to society.

So the NCB is not going to probe the video, but they probe whatsapp chats! This is double standard! If NCB is thinking that they are helping SSR probe, they are simply wrong. On the other hand, they single handedly branded SSR as a drug addict and flushed all SSR reputation, good work down the sewer. They came uninvited and made SSR death as their business and they did the damage. Now they will wind down their investigation by giving hi-fi to each other that they spent time with Deepika, Shradda and Sara.

Exactly. Frankly it looks more like KR is pulling the plugs and settling scores when NCB had some many more names to probes. And why is it only women that are being proked when so many male bollywood actors and POLITICIANS consume drugs, sick Indian Society and mentality!

Absolutely correct. CBI is a joke. Thakurey people are in CBI, so ofcourse real investigation has been distracted to drugs and murder mystery remained unsolved. CBI is fooling people, that's it.
