Mumbai: Actress Riya Chakraborty's brother Shovik Chakraborty has been arrested in connection with the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. He was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). In addition to Shovik, Sushant's former manager, Samuel Miranda, was also arrested.
NCB conducted a raid at Rhea Chakraborty's residence on Friday morning and seized laptops, hard drives and a few other digital pieces of evidence.
The raid was conducted a day after a Mumbai court sent alleged drug peddler Zaid Vilatra to seven-day custody of the NCB. Sources in NCB revealed that the agency had asked Showik to present himself at their office for his interrogation but he wrote back that he would be unable to as he had to also visit the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office on the same day.
Showik then visited NCB office today and was interrogated, after which he was arrested.
