Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau has issued a notice to Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar over a viral video allegedly showing drugs being consumed at a party at his house last year, NCB sources said on Thursday.
The notice has been sent to Johar to check the video’s veracity, an NCB official said.
“We have sought details about the video from Johar by 18 December,” he said.”His (Johar’s) representative can come (to NCB office) with the details or explanation about the video,” the official added.
The central agency is conducting an anti-drugs probe that began in connection with the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June this year.
Shiromani Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa had sent the video to NCB and his complaint was marked to the agency’s Mumbai zonal unit, the official said.
Sirsa had claimed that he had registered a complaint about this video with the Mumbai police in August last year but no probe was conducted.
