With each passing day, new revelations are being made in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Currently, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is probing a probable drug angle. For the same, actresses Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan were also summoned by the agency.
Following her interrogation, Rakul moved Delhi High Court with a plea against media coverage on her in the alleged drug case. Rakul was summoned by the NCB on September 25. It was reported that Rakul had moved Delhi HC “seeking an interim direction to the respondents to ensure that the media does not broadcast any programme or publish, print or circulate any article or write-ups relating to her in drug case.”
Now, as per an update by news agency ANI, the HC has issued a notice to the Centre. A tweet by the agency read, “Delhi High Court issues notice to Centre & others on a plea by actor Rakul Preet Singh, seeking interim direction to respondents to ensure that media doesn’t broadcast any programme, publish or print any article/write-ups relating to her in a drugs case.”
Earlier, it was reported that Rakul’s name was taken by Sushant’s girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is under NCB’s custody. A report by Times Now also stated that Rakul, during her interrogation, confessed to discussing drugs with Rhea but denied consuming drugs. She also allegedly said that she had no connection to any drug peddlers.
Sushant, 34, passed away on June 14. The actor’s body was found at his apartment in Mumbai. His death case was initially being investigated by the Mumbai Police. The Bihar Police also started probing the case but the charge was soon given to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is also probing the death case.
