Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone’s manager denied bail in drug case; Bollywood under snowed

Deepika’s manager, denied bail in the drug case linked to the Sushant Singh murder case.

As of Thursday, Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash’s plea for pre-arrest bail has been rejected by the court, in a drug case that was linked to the death of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

With the fear of a possibility of arrest in the drug-related case, Deepika’s manager had filed an anticipatory bail application before the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) court in October of 2020.

After hearing the submissions and the evidence laid in front of the court both by defense and prosecution, special judge VV Widwans rejected her plea for anticipatory bail. The court however stayed in order  till August 25 to allow Prakash to approach the Bombay High court.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been investigating the link between drug pebblers and Bollywood celebrities that came under the spotlight after the death of the “Kedarnath” star. The CBI is separately probing Rajput’s death case. Prakash’s name cropped up during interrogation of one of the arrested drug peddlers.

The central agency has so far arrested more than 20 persons as part of its investigation into the drug case. Most of the accused, including the late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, are out on bail currently.
