Mumbai – Indradev Pandey
There is supposed to be a lot of intimacy between Karishma and Deepika Padukone. A drugs chat of the two had also surfaced, in which they were talking about bringing the goods (drugs).
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has filed a case against Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash. On Tuesday, 1.8 grams of drugs were recovered from Karisma’s house by the NCB team. After this, Karishma was summoned by the NCB on Wednesday for questioning. NCB officials waited for him throughout the day. But she did not appear. After this, a case was registered against him under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act on Thursday.
Although the drugs recovered from Karishma’s house are in very small quantities, she can be arrested for this. According to NCB sources, three vials of CBD oil have also been seized from this house of Karishma. If convicted, they could face one year of rigorous imprisonment or a fine of up to Rs 10,000, or both.
The NCB raided Karishma’s house on Tuesday, where some amount of drugs was found. However, Karisma was not at home at the time of this action. Therefore, the NCB pasted the summons outside his house. Investigations have revealed that Karisma was in constant contact with drug peddlers. Karishma’s house on which action took place is her second home. It is being told that they keep coming here. However, her lawyer has denied that she lives here.
NCB has also questioned Karisma 2 times in the past. Karisma was once questioned by Deepika Padukone in front of her.
Last month, a conversation about drugs between Deepika and Karisma was revealed. In a chat dated 28 October 2017, Deepika used the words ‘hash’ and ‘weed’. The word hash is being used for hashish and weed hemp.
Karishma Prakash works with celebrity management company Kwan. The company provides talent managers to over 40 Bollywood celebrities. Rhea Chakraborty’s manager Jaya Saha also works for the company. Jaya is Karishma’s senior. The team of NCB, CBI and ED has questioned Jaya several times. During the investigation, NCB came to know of the chat between Jaya and Karishma. After this, the matter reached Deepika.
