Widening its probe into the drugs angle in the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) will summon Bollywood actors Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet for questioning. A top NCB source related to the probe told IANS, "This week, we will be sending summons to Sara, Shraddha and several others for questioning." Meanwhile, the NCB asked the late actor's former manager Shruti Modi and his talent manager Jaya Saha to appear before it on Monday. Saha reached the office of NCB's Special Investigation Team (SIT) in south Mumbai around 2pm, an official said. The Mumbai Police have barricaded the area around the SIT's office. The NCB will file an application in special NDPS Court seeking one-day custody of Showik Chakraborty, said sources.

Shruti Modi's questioning was postponed on September 16 after a member of the NCB's Special Investigation Team (SIT) team had tested positive for coronavirus. Modi, who had reached the NCB office in south Mumbai on Wednesday morning, was then sent back, an official had said. The NCB had on September 15 asked Saha to join its investigation.
