The CBI has been interrogating all those present on the day of the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and those who have been accused by the actor's family during the last few days. On Wednesday, CBI interrogated Rhea Chakraborty's father Indrajit for over ten hours along with Sushant's flatmate Siddharth Pithani and domestic staff Keshav. CBI's SIT continues to interrogate Indrajit Chakraborty for the third consecutive day today.

    The drug connection in Sushant Singh Rajput's death case is just a tip of the iceberg. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is investigating the 'drug angle' in Sushant's death case, has gathered vital leads on other cartels supplying drugs to several Bollywood personalities in Mumbai following the interrogation of two drug peddlers, Abbas Lakhani and Karan Arora, highly placed sources in the NCB told IANS.

    Based on these leads, the NCB would launch a nationwide crackdown on cartels involved in drug trafficking in Mumbai and other key metros.

    The entire operation to unearth big-time drug syndicates and cartels is being supervised by NCB chief Rakesh Asthana, a 1984 batch IPS officer, who earlier cracked one of the biggest international cocaine syndicates in India originating from Columbia, late last year.

    Top sources in NCB said that electronic evidence gathered by the bureau during the interrogation of Abbas Lakhani and Karan Arora revealed that leading Bollywood personalities were not only supplied marijuana or buds, but high quality cocaine was also being pushed into the film industry.

    A Mumbai court on Thursday granted the Narcotics Control Bureau seven days of custody of Zaid Vilatra, one of the accused it had arrested in the drug probe related to the Sushant Singh Rajput case. According to NCB sources, Vilatra was produced before a court and his remand sought on the grounds that he was allegedly involved in many drug dealings.

    The public prosecutor cited Section 27 (a) read with Section 29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, suggesting that Vilatra is involved in the drug cartel.

    However, Vilatra's lawyer, Tarak Sayed opposed the remand on the grounds that only cash was seized from his client which is a bailable offence. The court granted the NCB custody of Vilatra till September 9.

    The NCB, on the intervening night of August 27-28, carried out searches in Mumbai and two persons, namely Abbas Lakhani and Karn Arora were arrested, and the seizure of 'bud' (curated marijuana) was affected from their possession.

    The official said that the detailed network analysis and the follow up investigation, uncovered the linkages of Lakhani with Vilatra.

At most AIIMS report can show what was done or not done by Dr. Cooper Hospital doctors," he had tweeted on Wednesday.
