HC to give verdict on Karishma’s bail plea
The Bombay High Court is likely to pronounce its verdict on the anticipatory bail plea filed by Deepika Padukone‘s ex-manager Karishma Prakash. A report suggested that the court will hear the final argument today. She was interrogated by the Narcotics Control Bureau as they were probing alleged nexus between drug peddlers and Bollywood celebrities which came to light after actor Sushant Singh Rajput‘s suicide on June 14.
On Tuesday, Narcotics Control Bureau told a court that it will not take any “coercive action” against Karishma in the Bollywood-drugs case till November 7. Fearing arrest after the NCB summoned her in the case, Prakash filed an anticipatory bail plea.
The NCB has already recorded statements of Deepika and Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor in the case.
As per NCB sources, Prakash was summoned again after the central agency allegedly seized 1.7 gm of hashish during a search at her residence last month.
