As many are aware, Sushant Singh Rajput's flatmate Siddharth Pithani was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Hyderabad, and he was brought to Mumbai on a transit warrant obtained from a local court there. As per the latest reports, Siddharth has been sent to 14-day judicial custody in connection with the drugs case. According to PTI, Siddharth's role in the drug came to light during the investigation by the central agency.
An official told the news agency that a team of the NCB led by Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede had launched a search for Pithani who was later traced in Hyderabad. Earlier, according to reports, Pithani made new revelations to the NCB. According to a report in Republic, he revealed the names of the people who were close to SSR and also dropped Samuel Miranda's name.
For the uninitiated, Samuel was SSR's former house manager. Last year, he was summoned by the agencies investigating SSR's death case. As per reports, in the next few days, more people will be summoned by the NCB. After Pithani's arrest, SSR's house help Neeraj and his cook Keshav had also been summoned. And yesterday, his bodyguard was also summoned by the NCB.

The whole drug controversy erupted after SSR was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14, last year. Ahead of his first death anniversary, SSR's friends paid tribute to him on social media. In a recent interview with ETimes TV, Sushant Singh Rajput's 'Pavitra Rishta' co-star and actor Karanveer Mehra said that it breaks his heart speaking about the actor in the past tense. 'It is heart-wrenching,' said Karanveer.
