The Sushant Singh Rajput death case is getting murkier by the day. From murder theories to drug connection, the CBI is doing its best to unearth the reason behind the late actor’s suicide. On Tuesday, the Narcotics Control Bureau arrested alleged drug dealer Zaid Vilatra in connection with Sushant Singh Rajput’s case.
According to reports by India Today, Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik was in contact with Basit Parihar and Suryadeep Malhotra. Upon NCB apprehension and CDR analysis, it was revealed that the 20-year-old drug dealer was in contact with them for drug consumption and procurement.
As reports of Zaid involvement emerged in the media, a Hindi news channel reports of Aaj Tak set up a camera outside his residence. He even went on to knock at his door asking his father for a comment on his son’s arrest. However, much to the reporter’s horror, senior Vilatra abused and threatened him on live TV. He also accused him of invading his privacy while asking him to ‘Get Out’.
Earlier in March various media reports stated that Showik shared Zaid’s contact details with Sushant’s manager Samuel Miranda and asked him to pay Rs 10,000 for 5g drugs. Reports further stated that Miranda tried contacting Vilatra thrice after this.
The Narcotics Control Bureau is currently not collecting blood and nail samples of Rhea and is instead on the run to identify their drug peddlers. Ahead of her questioning of the CBI, Rhea had in a series of interviews claimed those drug deliveries mentioned in the chat were for Sushant alone. She also expressed her desire to submit her blood sample in case it was asked by the NCB.
However, a top NCB source told IANS: “This was a clever move as fresh samples can never detect the presence of drugs in the blood after more than a week. The blood sample test is only effective if it is conducted within a week.”
The source said: “It’s already been more than two months. So, the agency will get nothing from the blood samples. Our prime focus is to identify the drug peddlers, suppliers, and users, who provided those drugs to these people named in the case.”
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Bandra apartment on June 14th. The actor’s father has filed an abetment to suicide case against his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty. The case is currently investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
