Actor Rakul Preet Singh, summoned for questioning in a drug probe linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation, may be a no-show today. In a statement, she denied receiving “the alleged summons” either in Mumbai or in Hyderabad, where she is believed to be currently.
Shortly after her statement, a Narcotics Control Bureau official was quoted by news agency ANI as saying she has acknowledged the summons and updated her latest address.
She will be questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau, besides Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor, in the drug inquiry that started with chats retrieved from the phone of arrested actor Rhea Chakraborty.
Sources in the Narcotics Control Bureau say, however, that she has not responded to summons on any available contact so far. Reports also suggest Rakul Preet Singh has asked for more time.
Designer Simone Khambatta did arrive for questioning at the office of the Narcotics Control Bureau.
