The Bombay High Court on Tuesday reserved the order on the bail applications filed by actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty, Sushant Singh’s staff Samuel Miranda, Dileep Sawant and alleged drug peddler Abdel Basit Parihar in the drug abuse case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The actor and her brother have been accused of procuring drugs for Rajput, ANI reported. 

Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty, Rajput’s former manager Samuel Miranda and his cook Dipesh Sawant were arrested earlier this month by the Narcotics Control Bureau. The agency said that the siblings are active members of a drug syndicate. 

The siblings were “active members of a drug syndicate that was connected with high society personalities and drug suppliers”, the NCB said in an affidavit filed before the HC on Monday.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai on June 14, in what the Mumbai Police said was a case of suicide. However, Rajput’s father KK Singh had filed an FIR against Chakraborty, accusing her of abetment to suicide.

The CBI took over the inquiry into Rajput’s death as the Centre accepted the Bihar government’s recommendation to involve the investigation agency in the case. The Enforcement Directorate is probing a money-laundering angle while the Narcotics Bureau is probing alleged dealings in banned drugs.

A wider drug-nexus in Bollywood has emerged during the ongoing investigation.
