The Narcotics Control Bureau is unearthing drug linkages in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. According to latest updates, Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik who has been detained for procuring drugs for the late actor has in a statement to the anti drug agency said that his sister never spent for the drugs and it was Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda who managed his day to day expenses and paid for the drugs.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror , Showik has claimed that he learnt through his earlier visits to Sushant’s house that the actor used to smoke cannabis which was confirmed by his flatmate Siddharth Pithani. It has also been mentioned that Rhea only paid for drugs just once through her credit card and that Showik himself never received any money for arranging the drugs for the late actor.
“Through WhatsApp chat, my sister told me that Sushant is taking marijuana at least four-five times a day. Based on this, I told her that I would arrange five grams of bud (curated marijuana)… Then I contacted Abdel Basit Parihar, a friend of mine, to source bud and shared the rates of bud with Rhea and Samuel Miranda, as he used to be the house manager of Sushant then,” claims Showik in her statement as accessed by Mumbai Mirror.
Both Rhea and Showik are currently in NCB’s remand and have been denied bail by Sessions Court on Friday. The actress has reportedly revealed names of many B-Towners during interrogation including Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, Mukesh Chhabra and others for consuming drugs who are likely to be interrogated by the NCB.
