Siddharth Pithani, flatmate of Susant Singh Rajput aka SSR, arrested in a drug case confirmed news sources
The Narcotics Control Bureau arrested Siddharth Pithani, late Sushant Singh Rajput roommate, in a drug investigation. He was arrested by the Hyderabad NCB. The drug investigation began weeks after the actor’s death.
Pithani is reportedly due to appear in court soon. Pithani has been questioned by NCB and other investigative agencies multiple times since Sushant’s death on June 14, 2020. Now, he has been arrested two weeks before the first death anniversary of the actor.
The NCB began an investigation into drugs last year after the Enforcement Directorate allegedly found WhatsApp conversations involving Sushant and his close staff talking about drug use. Through their investigation, many Bollywood celebrities, including Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, and Deepika Padukone, have been questioned.
The Narcotics Control Bureau also arrested Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty and spent months in judicial custody. While Rhea was detained for a month, her brother was released on bail after almost three months in custody.
