MUMBAI: The Sushant Singh Rajput death has taken a fresh turn as Deepika Padukone's name has cropped up in the investigation connected to drugs. Sources from the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) have confirmed to India Today that the name of the Chhapaak actress was found in a WhatsApp chat during the investigation. The agency has also acquired WhatsApp chats of the actress with an employee of Kwan talent management agency, Karishma. Karishma works with Jaya Saha, with whom Rhea Chakraborty chatted about CBD oil, as a manager in the talent management agency.

On Monday (September 21), Jaya Saha was questioned by the NCB for four hours. The sources revealed that Karishma has also been summoned for questioning. According to NCB, the agency has acquired chats between Jaya Saha and Karishma in which they are seen discussing drugs.

Kwan talent management agency has contracts with many A-lister actors and actresses. Deepika Padukone is one of them.

Here's the text of the conversation between Deepika Padukone (D) and Karishma (K):

At 10:03 am, (+91-992-------) D writes: K, you have Maal?

At 10:05 am, (+91-961-------) K replies: Yes, but at home. I am at Bandra.

At 10:05 am, K writes: I can ask Amit if you want.

At 10:15 am, D writes: 1130/12ish

At 10:15 am, D writes: Till what time is Shal there?

K writes: I think she said 11:30 because she needs to at the other place at 12

Jaya Saha's name came up in the case when the Enforcement Directorate released Rhea Chakraborty's chat with the talent manager. In the chats, the two women can be seen discussing drugs. Jaya advised Rhea to use a few drops of a substance in Sushant Singh Rajput's tea or coffee. The message reads, "Use 4 drops in tea, let him sip it. Give it 30-40 mins to kick in." It was later found out that the duo was discussing CBD Oil.

Rhea Chakraborty's chats with her manager Shruti Modi and hotelier Gaurav Arya also indicated a drugs controversy in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The NCB then took over and started investigating the drug angle.

Apart from Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh's name have also surfaced in the case. The NCB will soon summon these actresses for questioning. Sara, Shraddha and Rakul used to party with Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty and others at a farmhouse in Lonavala.

Rhea Chakraborty is currently in Byculla jail for allegedly procuring drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput. Her brother, Showik Chakraborty, Sushant's house manager, Samuel Miranda, his staff, Dipesh Sawant, and drug peddlers, Zaid Vilatra and Basit Parihar, are also in jail. Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging dead at his Mumbai home on June 14.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is currently investigating the case. However, the NCB and the Enforcement Directorate are conducting their separate investigations in drug and money-laundering angle, respectively.
