Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday night arrested Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik Chakraborty and Manager Samuel Miranda in connection with the drug link in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
Leaked chats between Rhea and Showik indicated that latter was involved in dealing and selling of Marijuana. They have been detained under provisions of Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
Earlier in the day, top officers from NCB along with a woman staff raided Rhea Chakraborty’s house and conducted house search under the provisions of NDPS act.
Soon after a chat between Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty and Zaid Vilatra, a 20-year-old drug dealer surfaced on social media, the Narcotics Control Bureau had summoned Showik for questioning.
The chat dated March 17, 2020 revealed that Showik shared Zaid’s number with Samuel Miranda, Sushant’s ex manager asking him to pay a sum of rupees ten thousand for 5 grams.
On being questioned, Zaid exposed that he was given ten thousand rupees after which he gave 5 grams of drugs to two people.
According to reports, Rhea and her family members used to consume drugs and the actress was treating Sushant’s depression by giving him marijuana.
Rhea is alleged to keep drugs at her place brought by her brother. Sources reveal that she used to give those drugs to Sushant and this is how the late actor got addicted to it. After coming to know about Sushant’s drug addiction, his sister directed him to stay away from Rhea which gave rise to a huge argument between the two ladies.
As per reports, Rhea threatened Sushant by giving him three choices, ‘Either live with me, marry me or go back to your family’. The deceased, however, did not contact his family members much after the argument.
The sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has raised several questions and almost every other day something new pops up in this case. The CBI is probing those associated with the mystery of Sushant’s death continuously.
The late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her father, her brother, and two of Sushant’s associates are the main accused in this mystery death. The CBI is interrogating each and every person involved in this case be it the family of Sushant, his ex-manager or his servants.
However, the statements of Rhea and her family members recorded by the CBI during interrogation contradict each other.
