As per ANI reports, late Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-flatmate, Siddharth Pithani has been arrested by the The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with drugs case linked to the actor’s death.
Sidharth Pithani who got arrested in Hyderabad is being brought to Mumbai. Pithani has been questioned by the NCB for several days in the past. In fact, Pithani was questioned multiple times by the federal agency and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) too had quizzed Pithani for days in a row in September, last year.
This arrest comes weeks before Sushant Singh Rajput’s first death anniversary.
“Pithani has been arrested from Hyderabad,” an NCB official told IANS.
The arrest comes almost two and half months after it filed a 12,000-page charge sheet against 33 people, including actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and others in the Bollywood-drugs mafia probe case linked to Sushant’s death.
On March 5, the NCB charge sheet was filed before a Mumbai Special NDPS Court, following two cases registered by the drug law enforcement agency after an intimation from the Enforcement Directorate which was probing the financial angles in Sushant’s death.
