Karan Johar’s ‘Drugs Party’ to be probed soon; Complaint filed in NCB
Bollywood Drug scandal has now taken over the whole internet. Ever since ED recovered drug chats from Rhea Chakraborty’s mobile phone in connection to Sushant Singh Rajput death case, Narcotics Control Bureau has made many arrests and many A-listed celebrities’ names have also surfaced allegedly involved in illegal substance abuse. As a video had also gone viral on the internet from filmmaker Karan Johar’s party in 2019 where many big celebrities were seen partying and were alleged to be under the spell of illegal substance, by many netizens. Now as per recent developments, Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa has filed a complaint against the filmmaker for hosting such parties, and all the celebrities present in the party including; Deepika Padukone, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Vicky Kaushal and others for ‘consumption, possession and allowing a premise to be used for commission of offences, cognizable in nature under chapter 4 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985’.
Sirsa had reportedly filed the complaint against Karan Johar at NCB Headquarters in Delhi which was later transferred to NCB Mumbai for allegedly organising drugs party at his property. Talking about it Sirsa said in a media interaction, “The video of the party is glaring evidence about the incident of illicit drug traffic and abuse by persons belonging to the Indian film industry.”
Manjinder Sirsa had earlier also filed a complaint regarding the same which went unanswered, taking about it he had revealed, “I met NCB chief and stressed on reinvestigating the matter of drugs of 2019. NCB chief gave assurance of investigation into Karan Johar’s party in 2019. Mumbai Police had not responded to Karan Johar house party complaint filed by me last year. There must be two reasons – one, they(Mumbai Police) are hand in glove with them and secondly, that drug is a very common thing.”
“Bollywood must accept that there are black sheep and they need to throw them out. Bollywood should stand with NCB. I am hopeful that the NCB investigation will bring out the big names. I won’t stop in the coming days. I’ll move to court against Mumbai Police, filing a formal complaint against Mumbai Police also,” the Akali Dal leader further added.
Sirsa’s earlier Tweet read, “I met Sh. Rakesh Asthana, Chief of @narcoticsbureau at BSF head quarter, Delhi regarding submission of complaint about investigation & action against film Producer @karanjohar & others for organising drug party at his residence in Mumbai That party video must be investigated into!”
