The Narcotics Bureau Control (NCB) arrested Siddharth Pathani from Hyderabad in a drug case linked to late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Pathani is Rajput’s friend and former flatmate, and in the past, he has been interrogated by the federal anti-narcotics agency several times.
Around two and half months ago, NCB had filed a 12,000-page chargesheet against 33 people linked to Rajput’s death.
In September last year, the NCB had arrested Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Shovik Chakraborty in connection with drugs abuse allegations against Rajput. Rajput’s manager Samuel Miranda was also arrested by the agency on drug supply charges. Rhea was granted bail by the Bombay High Court in October last year, and shortly afterward her brother was also released on bail.
As the probe began, the anti-narcotics agency arrested several prominent Bollywood personalities Comedian Bharti Singh and her husband Harsh Limbachiya in connection with the drugs case. While several bollywood celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Sara Ali Khan have been interrogated by the agency.
