Following the raids, he was questioned by the NCB officials on November 13 for over seven hours. Speaking to the press after recording his statement, Rampal had said that he submitted a valid prescription for the tablets that were found at his house.
In his statement, Rampal said, "I have nothing to do with drugs, now even the NCB is satisfied. I have submitted a valid prescription of the tablets found at my residence. The officers are really doing a good job. They are asking about those who are linked to the cases being investigated. It's wrong to malign someone's image and I am cooperating with the agency."
Rampal’s partner Gabriella Demetriades was also questioned by the agency for two consecutive days.
