The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested two from Mumbai on Wednesday for allegedly supplying drugs to Samuel Miranda, actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager. He is accused of providing drugs to actor Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik.
Abdul Basit Parihar from Bandra and Zaid Vilatra from Andheri were arrested based on chats NCB found between Showik and Miranda. The two accused were produced before a local court for police custody. The NCB is also likely to interrogate Miranda and Showik in connection with the case to find out who these drugs were ultimately meant for.
The NCB had earlier arrested two others who supplied high-end cannabis to Bollywood parties. However, they were eventually bailed out. The NCB is trying to get information about local drug networks in the city and check if there are any links to Rhea Chakraborty.
The NCB had earlier registered an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty based on some of her supposedly leaked WhatsApp chats.
