According to reports in Spotboye, Deepika Padukone’s ex-manager Karishma Prakash’s bail plea has been adjourned. Confirming the same, ANI tweeted, “Anticipatory bail plea of Karishma Prakash, former manager of actor Deepika Padukone adjourned to November 23 by Special NDPS court.”
Karishma Prakash, who has been booked for procurement and possession of banned drugs, has been appearing before Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) since last week for questioning. On Tuesday, she was called in at the agency’s South Mumbai office for another round of questioning.
A few days ago, Karishma’s house was raided, and the NCB allegedly seized some contraband substances from her residence. Karishma has been under the NCB radar in connection with a case related to the alleged drug abuse by Bollywood celebrities. As per media reports, the NCB had earlier stated to the court that they would not take any “coercive” action such as an arrest against her. The special public prosecutor Atul Sarpande reportedly said that Karishma has to be present before the NCB for questioning.
It is being said that NCB had summoned Karishma Prakash on October 28 after the agency allegedly made a seizure 1.7 gm of hashish and three bottles of CBD oil during its search at her home. The Narcotics Control Bureau had stated that Karishma’s name came up during the questioning of a drug, peddler post his arrest.
