Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case Updates

The Narcotics Control Bureau on Saturday arrested Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's domestic help Dipesh Sawant in a drug-related case, part of the ongoing probe into the death of the late actor. The NCB arrested Sawant on Saturday evening following revelations made by Showik, the brother of Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and Rajput's house manager Samuel Miranda, who were arrested on Friday night. 

NCB on Friday arrested actress Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik Chakraborty and the late actor's house manager Samuel Miranda after interrogating them for 10 hours. Today, they underwent COVID19 and other medical tests before appearing in Mumbai's Esplanade Court. According to NCB officials, the agency got adequate evidence against them about their involvement in the drug case. Showik also confessed that he used to procure drugs for sister Rhea and father Indrajit. The NCB had also told a court that Showik used to order ganja and marijuana from drug-peddler Abdul Basit Parihar, who has been arrested and made payments to him over Google Pay.

On the other hand, the CBI team along with an AIIMS doctor reached Sushant's house to recreate the crime scene in the presence of his sister Meetu Singh.

After Showik and Miranda's arrest, NCB tightened the noose around Dipesh as well as Rhea Chakraborty. The actress is also under the radar of NCB as her credit card has been reportedly used for buying drugs. However, KPS Malhotra, Deputy Director, Narcotics Control Bureau revealed that NCB will record Dipesh Sawant's statement today. He has not been arrested as he serves the role of a witness.
