Coming as a significant development, the names of Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, and Simone Khambatta have apparently emerged in the Narcotics Control Bureau's (NCB) probe into the drugs angle surrounding the mysterious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, official sources said here on Monday, as reported by IANS.
Though NCB Deputy Director K.P.S. Malhotra confirmed the names of the above celebrities, he denied media speculation of the agency having prepared a so-called 'hit-list' of 25 Bollywood personalities in connection with the probe as it was reported by a few news channels.
Yesterday, the NCB officials had denied that Rhea named Sara, Rakul, and Simone during the probe but within 24 hours, the officials came up with a new twist and said that the names of these 3 came out in the investigation.
According to Zee News, Rhea in her confession told NCB that Sara Ali Khan had accompanied Sushant Singh Rajput and other friends to Thailand. It is to be noted that Rhea while speaking to a news channel, had stated that Sushant used to live his life like a king-size and had spent Rs 70 lakh on an all-boys' trip to Thailand.
Over a dozen persons have been arrested by the NCB so far, including Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, and several drug peddlers, narco-dealers, and suppliers.
While Rhea, Showik, and others have been sent to judicial custody, some of the drug peddlers have been remanded to NCB custody.
