Mumbai Mirror writes that Agisilaos Demetriades, brother of Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella was earlier arrested by the NCB. Reports state that he may have links with a "drug syndicate" linked to Sushant Singh Rajput's death. Hashish and alprazolam tablets had been seized from Demetriades.
Hindustan Times writes that Demetriades was in touch with drug dealers who supplied Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and others, who were later arrested. Chakraborty was granted bail, while Showik has moved a fresh bail plea in an Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court, according to DNA.
The NCB had even interrogated actors Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor in relation to the Rajput case.
Sara Ali Khan pursued her studies at Columbia University and came back to India in 2016. Since her debut film, she has constantly worked on honing her skills as an actor and continues to impress fans with her dance moves as well.
Born in Mumbai to actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, Sara Ali Khan made her acting debut in the film industry with Abhishek Kapoor's directorial Kedarnath.
