A local court in Mumbai placed Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda, who were arrested in connection with the drugs probe linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, in Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) custody till September 9.
Showik is brother of Rhea Chakraborty, who is the main accused in the death case. While Miranda was Rajput’s house manager.
The duo has been accused of allegedly procuring non-commercial quantity of marijuana/ ganja from a drug supplier at least 10-12 times between September 2019 and April this year.
Showik and Samuel:
As per the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, for non-commercial quantity, a person can get immunity from prosecution in lieu of volunteering for rehabilitation treatment. The NCB generally registers cases involving marijuana only when about 20 kg or more is involved. However, the NCB said it was probing if Showik and Samuel Miranda were part of a “network” involved in buying and selling of marijuana to Bollywood.
Both Showik and Miranda were arrested on Friday under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act after over over 10 hours of questioning. Besides them, the NCB has also arrested Zaid Vilatra (21) and Abdel Basit Parihar (23) who are already in the agency’s custody. The two on Saturday applied for bail.
