SSR case: NCB arrests Showik’s school friend Suryadeep Malhotra

Narcotics-Control-Bureau

A day after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) detained Showik Chakraborty’s school friend Suryadeep Malhotra, the drug law enforcement agency on Tuesday arrested him in connection with its probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, officials said.

A senior NCB official told IANS that Malhotra has been arrested by the agency after his involvement was found in the case. He was taken by the NCB from his home in Mumbai after it carried out searches.

The official said that he will be produced before a court later in the day. This is the 15th arrest in the case so far by the NCB.

Sushant was found dead in his Bandra home flat on June 14 — triggering a huge political row, an upheaval in Bollywood and simultaneous investigations by the NCB, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and even the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The NCB arrested Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty on September 8, her brother Showik, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda on September 4, and his personal staff Dipesh Sawant among several others in the last few days.

The NCB on Sunday also arrested six more people in connection with the case, including those who supplied drugs to the late actor through his girlfriend Rhea’s brother Showik and others.

The six drug peddlers arrested on Sunday were identified as Karanjeet Singh Anand, Dwayne Fernandes, Sanket Patel, Ankush Anreja, Sandeep Gupta and Aftab Fateh Ansari.

An NCB source said that the drug law enforcement agency has also seized the mobile phone of Rhea’s mother Sandhya, which was earlier not submitted by her to the financial probe agency. The source said that the NCB will check the phone if the calls or messages were shared from Sandhya’s phone for the procurement of drugs.

Taapsee made her debut as a stand-up comedian with a series, “One Mic Stand”, in 2019, where she was mentored by comedian Angad Ranyal.

“More importantly I was happy no one asked for the ticket money back.#OneMicStand #TheFirst,” she quipped.

Taapsee’s upcoming line-up of films are “Haseen Dillruba” , “Shabaash Mithu” and “Rashmi Rocket”.

Bombay High Court to take up Rhea, Showik’s bail plea on Tuesday

Rhea-Chakraborty

Justice S. V. Kotwal of the Bombay High Court adjourned the bail pleas by Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik in a narcotics case for hearing on Sep. 29 next week (Tuesday), their lawyer said here on Thursday.

At the hearing this afternoon, advocate Satish Maneshinde argued that the investigations by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) were without jurisdiction and illegal as the Supreme Court order of Aug. 19 stated that all matters in relation to the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case be transferred to the CBI.

Refuting a submission by Additional Solicitor-General Anil Singh, that the NCB had not been served with a copy of the application, Maneshinde said that it had been served twice.

Terming the case against Rhea as “a witch hunt”, he informed the court that she has been charged for procuring drugs for consumption by Sushant and nothing has been seized from her.

He said the offences for which she had been charged are bailable as Sec. 27A of the NDPS Act is not applicable to the present case as no commercial quantities of drugs were recovered from the siblings.

After hearing Maneshinde, Justice Kotwal asked Singh if the NCB wanted to file a reply and accordingly posted the matter for hearing on Sep. 29.

The Chakraborty sister-brother are presently in extended judicial custody till Oct. 6.
