After days of interrogation, Deepika Padukone’s manager, Karishma Prakash has been summoned once again by NCB and she has been asked to visit their office to record her statement. As per new reports in ANI, Karishma has been summoned by Narcotics Control Department on Tuesday, November 10 for questioning. Her summon came in hours after Bollywood producer, Firoz Nadiadwala was summoned by NCB in their drug investigation.
NCB officials are actively looking out for links and drug nexus that exists in Bollywood. They actively got involved in the matter after they started with their investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput’s alleged suicide case. Karishma was earlier summoned by NCB in September and was called in again for questioning last month. She visited their office several times this week and later filed an anticipatory bail application.

The reason behind filing the anticipatory bail application was her fear of getting arrested. During her last hearing at Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act court, her lawyer had assured that Karishma is willing to co-operate with the NCB in their investigation. She got involved in the ongoing investigation after NCB officials had allegedly seized 1.7 gm of hashish during a search at her residence here.
