In a big development in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on the 28th of May, has arrested Sushant Singh Rajput’s roommate Siddharth Pithani in the drugs case linked to the actor’s death.
The agency held Pithani in Hyderabad and he has been bought to Mumbai. He was remanded to 5 day custody after being produced in the court on the 28th of May.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s roommate Siddharth Pithani was present in the Bandra residence of Sushant where he was found dead under mysterious circumstances on June 14 last year. The former claimed that he was the first to see his dead body, having called the locksmith to open the door when the late actor did not answer calls on the day of his death.
Pithani had previously been questioned multiple times by the Enforcement Directorate and Central Bureau of Investigation, which are probing the case registered by Bihar Police, on Sushant’s father KK Singh’s complaint, against Rhea Chakraborty and the others.
As per sources, Siddharth Pithani was arrested on May 26 by NCB. This was after the agency got his phone dump from the CBI.
In that record he was found involved in Ganja supply to various groups.. NCB also claimed that he was running a well organised racket of supply. The sources also said, “We are hopeful to nab more people who are involved in this network. Today he was produced after taking the transit remand.”
While no major updates on the probe have emerged from the two agencies, the NCB has questioned Rhea, her brother Showik, and SSR’s house staff and even arrested them. They are out on bail. The agency also questioned many celebrities of the film industry and arrested some of them.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on March 5 filed a charge-sheet before a special court in Mumbai in its drugs angle case related to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput in 2020.
