The drug case of Bollywood is getting more and more complicated as more characters have been exposed to be involved in using drugs.

The drug case in Bollywood has not been settled as new details keep being unfolded. Recently, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested the wife of movie producer Firoz Nadiadwala in a drug-connected case after marijuana (ganja) was found at their house in suburban Juhu.

Meanwhile, after quite a while of interrogation, Karishma Prakash, manager of Deepika Padukone, has again been summoned by NCB. She was asked to come to their office for the recording of her statement on 10 November. The occurrence came after the special NDPS court decided to adjourn the anticipatory bail plea of Prakash.

For those who haven't known, Deepika's manager has also resigned from the agency following the drug case

As per PTI, Nadiadwala was summoned by the agency earlier in the day but failed to show up. Sameer Wankhede, the zonal director of NCB Mumbai, said,

"We have arrested Firoz Nadiadwala's wife under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Further investigation is on."

The director also added that the contraband fetched from the residence was prima facie obtained from a Wahid Abdul Kadir Sheikh alias Sultan, who was earlier arrested. The official specified in his statement,

“Firoz Nadiadwala's wife Shabana Saeed was issued a notice under section 67 of the NDPS Act. She was arrested after her statement was recorded."

A reported drug peddler was under arrest after the Narcotics Control Bureau oversaw raids at Kharghar and Andheri areas on the nights of 7 and 8 November.

In a related probe, Agisilaos Demetriades, brother of Gabriella Demetriades – Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal’s partner was under arrest recently for being related to a drug case. He was granted bail in a special court on 6 November.

However, it came as bad news to Demtriades as the anti-drug agency took his custody again in another drug case lately.

The investigation on drugs among the town had been carried out after the demise of late Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput on 14 June after which multiple B-town celebrities had been under the scanner of NCB. The list includes Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, among others.
