Showik and Miranda were arrested under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act on Friday. The NCB in its briefing also confirmed that they will take the case to a logical conclusion and will compare statements in custody.
Previously, sources close to Times Of India reported that central agencies had cloned Rhea Chakraborty’s phone, which released her apparent involvement in the purchase, possession, sale, and consumption of contraband under the NDPS Act.
On Friday morning, teams of NCB searched the residences of Showik Chakraborty in Santa Cruz (West) area and Samuel Miranda in the suburban Andheri (West) area, news agency PTI reported.
The NCB launched an investigation after the Enforcement Directorate registered a case in the late actor’s death after a First Information Report (FIR) was filed by Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh against Rhea Chakraborty. He has accused the actress of abetting Sushant’s suicide, financial fraud among a string of other charges.
Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty who is the main accused in the case has been summoned for investigation. It remains to be seen whether the NCB takes her into custody or not.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his apartment on June 14th. The case is currently investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
