New Delhi: Probing the drug angle in the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Narcotics Manage Bureau on Friday (September four) evening arrested Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik and the Bollywood star’s residence manager, Samuel Miranda. The duo was arrested just after ten hrs of questioning. They will be made just before a Mumbai court tomorrow (September five).
The duo’s arrest obviously displays that the noose close to Rhea Chakraborty is tightening, and there is a chance that she would also be arrested by the NCB, which has currently summoned her for questioning on Saturday.
In accordance to sources, Showik has confessed to NCB that he applied to get medicines for Sushant Singh on the behest of his sister Riya as a result of Samuel Miranda.
Sushant’s residence manager Samuel Miranda has also advised NCB that he applied to organize medicines, named Budd, at the behest of Showik for Sushant. The digital data of as several as twelve fiscal transactions in between Samuel Miranda and Showik are there. Rhea Chakraborty’s credit score card was also applied for numerous transactions.
Speaking to DNA, Mumbai’s eminent criminal attorney Ujjawal Nikam explained that there is a chance that Rhea Chakraborty can be arrested. The drug angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput situation is most likely to present the intention or motive behind offering medicines to the Bollywood star, who was observed dead at his Bandra flat on June 14.
Nikam explained that in this situation there are no eyewitnesses, as a result circumstantial proof would perform a essential purpose in establishing the chain.
We have to have to recognize why Rhea Chakraborty can be arrested. The 1st major motive is that Rhea is accused of offering medicines to Sushant Singh, and the very same has been confirmed through’s Showik Chakraborty’s interrogation. On the basis of these grounds, the NCB may possibly arrest Rhea.

It is alleged that she applied Sushant’s income for purchasing medicines for herself and meet other specifications of her household.
Sushant Singh’s household has also alleged that he was separated from his household due to Riya Chakraborty. On August 27, Sushant’s father, KK Singh stated that Rhea Chakraborty poisoned his son and should really be arrested.
He explained, “Rhea mere bete ki hatyarin hai, medicines deti thi, giraftar kari jayi (Rhea is the murderess of my son, she applied to give him medicines and should be arrested).”
