Showik Chakraborty says, Sushant Singh Rajput’s manager paid for drugs, not Rhea Chakraborty
Showik Chakraborty claimed that his sister Rhea Chakraborty never paid for the drugs.
Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty have been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the drugs case linked to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Now, Showik told the NCB in his statement that not his sister, but SSR’s manager Samuel Miranda paid for the drugs as he managed the drugs-related finances for the actor.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Showik said that his sister Rhea paid only once for the drugs from her credit card, “Through WhatsApp chat my sister told me that Sushant is taking marijuana at least four-five times a day. Based on this I told her that I would arrange five grams of bud (curated marijuana)… Then I contacted Abdel Basit Parihar, a friend of mine, to source bud and shared the rates of bud with Rhea and Samuel Miranda, as he used to be the house manager of Sushant then,” said the report.
Showik also told the NCB officials that Miranda was in charge of SSR’s household, and he was the one who managed the daily expenses of the actor.
In the Showik’s statement that was obtained by India Today, it revealed that he got to know about the Dil Bechara actor taking drugs from his sister who told him that he used to take marijuana 4-5 times a day.
On Saturday, the NCB arrested drug peddlers named Karam Jeet Singh Anand and Ankush Arneja in connection with the SSR’s case. The agency also raided around seven locations in Mumbai and Goa.
