According to a report on Republic, Shraddha has denied consuming drugs but has alleged that Sushant Singh Rajput did consume drugs.

The report states that Sara has also denied consuming any drugs.
Meanwhile, Deepika was allegedly questioned about the drug chats between her manager Karishma Prakash, Jaya Saha, and other KWAN executives, as per the report that has quoted unnamed sources. Deepika was confronted with her manager Karishma Prakash during questioning, sources said.
Deepika, who reached a guest house in Colaba in south Mumbai -- from where an NCB team is operating -- around 9.50 am, left around 3.50 pm. Karishma Prakash was also allowed to go home around 3.40 pm, NCB sources said. Their statements will be reviewed by the agency now.
