Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik Chakraborty and Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau. However, another report by ANI quotes the NCB as saying, “Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda will be arrested in two hours, formal process underway”. A team from the Narcotics Control Bureau had reached the residence of Sushant’s alleged girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty on Friday morning, 4 September, to conduct a search, as the agency is currently investigating a lead in relation to the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation.
The Chakraborty family handed over evidence such as mobile phones and a laptop to the NCB search team. Similar searches were conducted at Sushant’s house manager’s Samuel Miranda’s residence and that of Showik Chakraborty as provided under the NDPS Act. On Wednesday, the NCB arrested two suspects on charges of supplying drugs to Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda. The agency alleges that narcotics were given to Samuel Miranda.
These drugs were then handed over to Showik Chakraborty – Rhea’s brother. According to the NCB, Bandra resident, Abdul Basit Parihar and Zaid Vilatra a resident from Andheri were arrested after the NCB allegedly traced chats between Rhea’s brother Showik and Miranda.
