As the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) tightened the grip on Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea’s family, the younger Chakraborty Showik turned crucial in the drug angle in the actor’s death case.
While seven people including Sushant’s manager Samuel Miranda and Showik were arrested and produced to the court on Saturday, sources confirmed that the duo has given so many names with whom he was dealing in drugs.
According to the sources, NCB sleuths revealed that numerous proofs confirmed Showik’s connections with drug peddlers. “He used to pay and receive money via credit cards/cash and payment gateways,” the NCB told the court. NCB also adding that Showik was an active member of the drug syndicate connected with high profile personalities and drug suppliers.
Earlier in the day, the NCB also carried out searches at the residences of Showik and Miranda. They also seized Showik’s laptop and mobile phone. It is alleged that Showik played a crucial role in supplying drugs to Sushanth’s house.
On the other hand, Showik’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has been opposing the NCB’s demand for remand in the court as no seizures have been made during the raids.
