Mumbai: An accused among the two arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB)-the agency probing the drug angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput case–has a direct connection with Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty, sources said on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the NCB arrested two persons and also informed of 3.5 kgs of marijuana being seized.
The NCB is probing Rhea, the prime accused in the sensational case, after the leak of her alleged chats and the Enforcement Directorate submitting proof to the CBI currently involved in the investigation.
Additionally, the late actor’s former manager Shruti Modi, who featured in the purported drug chats with Rhea, through her lawyer disclosed that the biggest drug supplier in Mumbai is a controversial politically-linked celebrity builder.
On August 31, the CBI team once again questioned Rhea and Showik at the DRDO guest house. It was reported that Rhea was quizzed about the reason behind their break up and why she did not check up on Sushant and his health between June 8 to June 14.
Several others like Siddharth Pithani, Samuel Miranda, Sushant’s house helps Dipesh, Keshav and Neeraj also have been quizzed over the last few days.
Earlier in the day, the CBI issued a summon to Rhea’s parents Indrajit and Sandhya, calling them for questioning.
