On Friday, Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik and Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda were arrested as part of the probe into Sushant’s death by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
NCB searched the residences of Showik and Samuel
A couple of weeks ago, NCB had begun its investigation after communication by ED that chats related to drug procurement and usage could have a connection to Sushant’s murder case. Later, investigations were carried out, and recently, NCB had searched the houses of Showik and Samuel. They were arrested on Friday, and a day later, Sushant’s house-help Dipesh Sawant was also taken behind the bars.
Indrajit Chakraborty issues a statement
After his son Showik was arrested on Friday, Mr Indrajit issued a statement regarding the matter. Speaking to India Today, the Lt Col (retd) said: “Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I’m sure next on the line is my daughter and I don’t know who is next thereafter. You have effectively demolished a middle-class family. But of course, for the sake of justice, everything is justified. Jai Hind.”
In recent days, there is a strong opinion on social-media that Rhea was being unfairly targeted by the media. Rhea’s father also seems to have voiced a similar opinion, and even sort of predicted that his daughter will also suffer the same fate as his son. He even accused some of destroying a middle-class Indian family, and also took a jibe by saying that for the sake of justice, all of it is justified.
Showik Chakraborty has confessed during his interrogation with the NCB that he used to arrange the drugs on his sister Rhea’s instructions. He also stated that Samuel Miranda used to arrange it and bring it to Sushant’s home. Showik also was in touch with many drug peddlers.
As per the latest update coming in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, Rhea Chakraborty’s close associate Samuel Miranda has apparently confessed to the Narcotics Control Bureau that he was the one procuring drugs for the late actor’s house.
On Friday, NCB had picked up Rhea’s brother Showik and Samuel Miranda after a raid at their respective houses. Post that, they were reportedly taken to the NCB headquarters for grilling. Currently, their grilling is underway and several facts related to the alleged drug chats may be uncovered.
