According to a report on Times Now, in the statement recorded by the NCB under section 67 of the NDPS ACT, Showik reportedly said that he procured drugs for the late actor and it was his sister Rhea Chakraborty who paid for them.
Showik also alleged that it was Sushant who asked buds and curated marijuana from him. He added that before the lockdown, in March, he got the drugs sourced through Basit Parihar by getting in touch with Zaid Vilatra and then Samuel Miranda scored that bud in a bag from outside a restaurant in Bandra, Mumbai.
After arresting Showik and Samuel, the NCB also arrested Rhea after three days of questioning. The actress was sent to 14-days of judicial custody on Tuesday and her bail plea was also rejected by the magistrate court. Her legal team is currently in the Mumbai Sessions Court hearing her bail plea.
The Enforcement Directorate had procured chat records of Rhea Chakraborty which had mentioning of drugs in them. They were handed over to the NCB which is now probing the drug abuse angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
