The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) questioned Deepika Padukone for over five hours. There is no information on the nature of the questions. But Deepika apparently handled the questions, posed to her by a 5-member panel, well. Apparently she didnt give anything away, and the NCB is expected to call her for questioning soon again.As for the information on the request by Ranveer Singh to accompany his wife during the interrogation a close friend of the couple informs, Deepika may look fragile and delicate and that she needs her man by her side during a crisis. But shes a very strong woman. Shes capable of handling herself. She had gone through the possible questions at the NCB interrogation with her legal team the night before and she was prepared.It is unlikely that she would end up saying anything she didnt want. Its a very tough situation for Deepika and Ranveer. But to suggest that she would ask her husband to be present during her questioning is way too wimpish a thought to be entertained by Deepika, a filmmaker-friend of the actress is confident Deepika will emerge from this crisis confidently.

"The Disclosure of a 200 per cent conclusion by an AIIMS Doctor in the team headed by Dr Gupta in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, on the basis of photographs is a dangerous trend. To keep the investigations impartial and free from inference, the CBI must constitute a new Medical Board.
