NCB Denies Rhea Naming Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh; Not Prepared ‘Bollywood List’by Sanchita
Recently, according to a report in Times Now, it was widely reported that Rhea Chakraborty who was arrested by the NCB had named actresses Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and fashion designer Simone Khambhatta over alleged drug use.
The report also mentioned that the NCB has a list of 25 Bollywood A-Listers who are allegedly involved in drugs. However, NCB deputy director KPS Malhotra denied these claims!
As per Free Press Journal report, KPS Malhotra denied preparing such ‘Bollywood list’. He said, “We have not prepared any Bollywood list. The list earlier prepared was of peddlers and traffickers. It’s getting confused with Bollywood.”
When asked about the reports claiming that Rhea had named Sara, Rakul and Simone in her statement to the NCB, the officer commented, “The names have not been zeroed upon.”
The misleading information about NCB summoning Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh was shared by a fake account, which has now been taken down.
On Friday, a special court had rejected bail pleas of Rhea and her brother Showik. The siblings are expected to approach the High Court today for bail. For now, Rhea is in judicial custody till September 22 at the Byculla Jail.
