Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda have been placed under arrest under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, news agency PTI reported quoting a senior NCB officer.
Rhea, the main accused of the death case which is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation, is likely to be summoned by the NCB as well. The drug abuse angle of the case surfaced when the 28-year-old was being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate over money laundering charges linked to the same case.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Bandra residence on June 14. The Mumbai Police, who were probing the case, initially called it a suicide, before the CBI took over after receiving an order by the Supreme Court. The probe is a result of Rajput’s father KK Singh lodging an FIR with the Bihar Police, accusing Rhea and six others for abetting to the actor’s suicide and various other charges.
