Deepika Padukone 'admin' of Whatsapp group related to narcotics-selling: NCB

Deepika Padukone has been hauled in for investigation amid the ongoing drugs nexus case in relation to Sushant Singh Rajput's death probe. 

Now, new reports have shown that Deepika was in fact the admin of the WhatsApp group in which selling and buying of drugs were reportedly discussed.

According to Times Now, NCB sources have revealed that the WhatsApp group on the basis of which Deepika was issued summons, was administered by the starlet herself.

It is important to note that that talent manager Jaya Shah revealed the same while being interrogated by the Narcotics Control Bureau  (NCB).

Meanwhile, Jaya herself was an “admin” of the chat group.

 Deepika was earlier summoned by NCB on the grounds of drugs consumption and links to drug peddlers. 

Many other celebrities including Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet, Shraddha Kapoor and designer Simone Khambatta have been summoned by the NBC in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case in correlation with the ‘drug angle’. 

On Friday, Deepika's manager Karishma Prakashn appeared before the NCB and is set to be summoned again.
