According to a video by Times Now, giving some clarity on the ongoing investigation was Mutha Ashok Jain, Deputy Director-General, South-Western Region, NCB. When asked about KJo’s party video being a possible key element in Sushant’s case, Ashok clarified that the 2019 party has nothing do with this investigation. Ashok also revealed that Khitij Prasad has been placed under arrest after questioning while no fresh summons have been issued. More than 18 people have been arrested so far. 
Earlier, in a lengthy statement on Instagram, Karan issued a clarification stating that the allegations put on him were “completely baseless and false.” 
“No narcotics substance was consumed in the party. I would like to unequivocally once again state that I do not consume narcotics and I do not promote or encourage consumption of any substance,” Johar stated while adding, “Mr. Kshitij Ravi Prasad joined Dharmatic Entertainment (sister concern of Dharma Productions) in November 2019 as one of the executive producers on contract basis for a project which eventually did not materialise.”
