Sushant Singh Rajput's talent manager Jaya Saha quizzed by NCB; Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh may be summoned

Former manager Shruti Modi's questioning was postponed last week.

After Jaya Saha (L), NCB is going to summon Rakul Preet Singh (C), Sara Ali Khan (R) and fashion designer Simon Khambata (not pictured this week in connection with an ongoing drugs probe.

NEW DELHI: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Monday questioned the talent manager of deceased actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Jaya Saha was quizzed by the central agency at its Special Investigation Team's office in Mumbai.

Saha was seen reaching the office in south Mumbai around 2 pm, and was quizzed for a few hours. The Mumbai Police had barricaded the area around the SIT's office while she was at the premises.

Last week, the NCB had also asked Rajput's former manager Shruti Modi to appear before it. However, her questioning was postponed after a member of the SIT tested positive for coronavirus.

Earlier, statements of Modi and Saha were recorded by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is separately probing the actor's death case. The manager duo were also summoned by the Enforcement Directorate and the Mumbai Police in connection with the late actor's death.

As part of its investigation, the NCB had conducted raids at multiple locations in Mumbai and Goa to unearth the drugs supply network.

Rajput's death probe opened a can of worms and various A-list celebrities were named in the agency's probe into the drugs angle.

The federal anti-drugs agency has so far arrested more than a dozen persons, including Rajput's actress-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty, in the case.

Meanwhile, the NCB is also planning to summon Bollywood stars Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh, and fashion designer Simon Khambata this week in connection with the ongoing drugs probe, a senior official of the probe agency told news agency PTI.

Rakul Preet Singh last week moved the Delhi High Court seeking to stop media reports from connecting her with the Rhea Chakraborty drug case. She said leaks to the media need to be investigated as "someone's reputation is totally destroyed by it."

The high court on Thursday sought the Centre's reply on her plea.
