After arriving from Hyderabad on Thursday evening, Rakul Preet Singh was snapped leaving her residence on Friday morning for NCB questioning. The actress had initially not disclosed whether she was in Hyderabad or Mumbai and denied receiving any summons. On Thursday, a NCB official confirmed the development that Rakul had acknoweldged the summons."Yes, Rakul Preet Singh has acknowledged the summons and updated her latest address: Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) official," tweeted ANI.

The actress' name reportedly came up during the interrogation of Rhea Chakraborty who named her, Sara Ali Khan and designer Simone Khambatta. However, Rhea's lawyer Satish Maneshinde has denied all such claims stating that Rhea did not reveal any names during the course of her interrogation. 

After around four hours of questioning, Rakul Preet Singh left the NCB guesthouse and was snapped entering her residence. 

Take a look at Rakul Preet Singh's photos below: 

CNN News 18 had reported earlier that Rakul is expected to face questions like: Did you procure drugs from Rhea Chakraborty? Did you attend alleged drug parties at Sushant Singh Rajput's farmhouse and do you know people who consume and supply drugs? 

The actress was snapped on Thursday evening at the airport as she arrived from Hyderabad. Apart from her, Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor have also been summoned. While Deepika was set to appear today alongside Rakul, her date has  been pushed to 26 September. On Saturday, Deepika, Sara and Shraddha are expected to appear before the NCB.

Why should "drugs" come in their wattsapp chats if they are not consuming it ? Simple logic.

Can't your mouth be shut and not be judgmental about everything. I don't know what kind of environment all of you are being raised in who's always commenting on other people's lives. How are you so jobless and not just mind your lives

They are just being summoned for verification & cross check. But Indian Taliban has already declared them a criminal.

For those who believe in logic & reason: Summons are just for questioning & verification. Not to prove guilt. That is done in a court after a trial. NCB is walking on thin ice with just WhatsApp chats & zero recovery of significant amount of drugs. The only drugs that were found were 59 grams of marijuana on one of the peddlers which are still disputed. And Sushant's dope box was empty the day he was found hanging. Cases based purely on WhatsApp chats will not stand a chance in court. These chats may be relevant enough to create sensation in the media & may be presented as electronic evidence under 65B to prove that communication passed through the 2 phones, but without sufficient evidence to fasten any criminal liability or responsibility on the 2 phone users, the evidence is not enough to start a trial. Both the users may say someone else used their phones. If one person admits to the conversation & selling of the drug then that person becomes accused. Still his/ her statement will not be admissible because statement of one co accused against another co accused is not admissible in court. Unless the other person admits to purchase & consumption of drugs, he/she cannot be charged. Even if there is a chat of sending and receiving drugs, offense of selling & purchase of drugs has to be established & presented as direct evidence. You cannot use WhatsApp chats for the purpose of a trial. No court is going to accept it. The truth is top agencies are put on this wild goose

Indians pretend to be modern & open-minded but are worse than the Taliban. At least the Taliban wait for the trial & a verdict. But Indians have already passed judgments based on Whatsapp chats, summons & allegations by family, friends, etc.

ED, CBI, NCB can summon the whole universe & submit reports. But all will come up with nothing against Rhea or the rest. As there is indeed nothing. There is no proof of her laundering money. And the minuscule quantity of marijuana found on one of the peddlers is still disputed. Except that according to NCB, Rhea & the rest procured drugs for SSR. Ergo he is the user, and that makes him the prime accused. If he was alive, he would be the first one to go to jail. SSR was a grown up man who was hooked on to drugs & people cannot come to terms with his sudden death. BJP is using SSR's death, his family & Kangana as tools for political gain. Rhea hid SSR's drug habits from all & atleast gave him some dignity in death. Until the family came out after 40 days to demand money & somehow convict her. More importantly, his family hid his mental illness & a sister illegally prescribed dangerous medicines during his last days. Media circus & BJP tools have created a rhetoric & are targetting people through allegations without waiting for a conviction. The investigation & opinion has turned into a lynch fest for Rhea & the rest. India loves mob justice & are worse than the Taliban. Some Indians love mob justice & are worse than the Taliban. This biggest herd of sheep in the world is currently being diverted from the free-falling economy, rising COVID cases, unemployment, farmers & the migrant crisis. Vote wisely next time India.

Bollywood is fake as hell. Why else do you think a below average looking chick like Rakulpreet (seriously google her portfolio pictures from like 2009!) is able to get any roles? Boycott this industry. Korean, English, French, and even Arabic shows and movies are superior. Pop on subtitles if you need to, but do not watch Hindu movies or shows! These idiots are doing more damage to our language and country than good.
