    Showik Chakraborty, brother of Rhea Chakraborty, used to purchase ganja and marijuana from drug peddler Abdel Basit Parihar and make payments through a Google Pay account, the NCB said on Friday.

    NCB is the third Central agency to join the probe into the death of Sushant, after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

    According to NCB officials, drug-peddler Zaid Vilatra, who has also arrested, in his statement to the agency, disclosed that Parihar used to be the "receiver" of ganja or marijuana from him.

    "Parihar, in his statement, revealed that he used to procure drugs from Vilatra and absconding accused Kaizan Ebrahim, as per instructions of Showik, and was directing them to deliver contraband to Samuel Miranda, the house manager of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput," the NCB said.

    The NCB said that there are other instances where Parihar facilitated the drugs delivery and he was in contact with Showik. "The payment for the drugs was done by Showik to Parihar through Google Pay account," the NCB claimed.

    Had Sushant planned to propose Kedarnath co-star Sara Ali Khan?

    Reports have been doing the rounds that Sushant Singh Rajput was allegedly dating his Kedarnath co-star Sara Ali Khan around the time the film released. Now, the caretaker of a farmhouse the late actor owned in Lonavala has claimed Sushant had plans to propose to Sara at the farmhouse in January 2019.

    Raees, the caretaker of Sushant's Lonavala farmhouse from September 2018 till July this year even after his death, however said while speaking to IANS that he is not aware if the proposal that Sushant had in mind was for a wedding. The caretaker added that Sara had been a regular at the place since 2018 but "never came to the farmhouse after January 2019".

    "Sara Ali started visiting the farmhouse together with Sushant sir from 2018. They would stay at the farmhouse for three to four days whenever they came. After returning from their Thailand trip in December 2018, Sushant sir and Sara ma'am came directly to the farmhouse from the airport. They came at around 10 or 11 in the night. They were accompanied by a friend," Raees told IANS.

    "Sara ma'am was very well mannered. She didn't behave like an actress. She was so simple. She would address the farmhouse's domestic help as maushi (aunty), just as Sushant sir did, and she called me Raees bhai. She was very respectful towards Sushant sir's staff," he recalled about the "Kedarnath" actress.

    Quizzed about the relationship between the two stars, Raees claimed that he had heard Sushant was planning to "propose" to Sara around his birthday on January 21, 2019. However, Raees says he is "not sure" if it was a "wedding proposal" or not.
