In a confession, Showik said to NCB, “Between 15/04/2020 to 17/042020, Sushant called me and conveyed me that his stock of bud and weed were about to get over and the same was conveyed to me by Samuel Miranda. When Samuel Miranda initially requested me to arrange weed or bud for Sushant, I said that I don’t have much contacts to arrange bud and weed frequently. However, on 17/04, Samuel again contacted me over WhatsApp chat and conveyed that his old suppliers like Karamjeet have run dry of drugs.”
Samuel Miranda, the house manager of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput is also in the custody of NCB. Drug peddlers Karanjeet Singh Anand, Dwayne Fernandes, Sanket Patel, Ankush Anreja, Sandeep Gupta and Aftab Fateh Ansari have also been arrested. NCB has also seized the mobile phone of Rhea’s mother Sandhya. It will check the phone if the calls or messages were shared from Sandhya’s phone for the procurement of drugs.
It is said that Rhea has named some Bollywood celebs who are involved in the consumption of drugs. NCB may summon those celebs soon.
Sushant was found dead at his Bandra apartment on June 14 this year.
