Karan Johar in Bollywood’s drug probe:
The lawyer of Khsitij and Rhea names Karan Johar in Bollywood’s drug probe. Maneshinde, who represents not only Rhea Chakraborty but also her brother Showik, told the court that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials pressurized Kshitij Prasad to name Karan Johar during the interrogation. He was also subjected to third-degree and ill-treatment, the lawyer alleged.
Prasad told the court that during a raid at his house the NCB did not find anything, except stale and dry cigarette butt, which they “believed to be a ganja joint”, a note shared by his lawyer said.
“…Kshitij was categorically informed by Sameer Wankhede in the presence of several other officers, that since he was associated with Dharma Productions, they would let him off if he implicated either Karan Johar, Somel Mishra, Rakhi, Apoorva, Neeraj, or Rahil falsely alleging that they consumed drugs. Kshitij refused to comply with this despite the pressure being mounted on him. As he did not know any of these people personally. And did not wish to falsely implicate anyone,” added the statement.
