Entertainment Desk September 05, 2020

In the newest development in late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau, reported Pinkvilla.

Earlier, the NCB was reported to be studying the drugs angle in SSR's death, after some WhatsApp chats started doing the rounds on social media, starting new buzz about whether drugs were administered to Rajput without him knowing. Chats of the same nature between Showik and a friend from October 2019 reportedly confirmed a connection between him and drug dealers.

Rajput's former manager, Shruti Modi also revealed to the CBI that the Kedarnath actor would consume marijuana with Chakraborty. Sources also further confirmed that Chakraborty was involved in such consumption at Rajput's terrace with Rajput's house manager, Samuel Miranda, and Showik.

While CBI is now also looking at the drugs scandal, reports suggest that the Enforcement Directorate is still involved in investigating the earlier money laundering angle in the actor's untimely death. Rajput's death was previously being investigated by the Mumbai police and the case was later handed over to CBI.

Rajput was found hanging at his Mumbai house on June 14 in an alleged suicide, however, the death is now being investigated for foul play.
