In the major drug expose in B-Town linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, key producers, directors, actors, actresses and other film personalities are likely to be called for questioning next week onwards. The sustained interrogation of siblings Rhea and Showik Chakraborty has revealed that around 20 such people were involved in the consumption and use of these drugs. The propensity to use curated marijuana buds, cocaine, MDMA and other synthetic tablets was commonplace in this drug circuit in B-Town.

While several names have already been bandied about, the questioning of these 20 people is likely to begin from Monday onwards, enlarging the scope of the investigation which is now essentially a high-profile drug case under the auspices of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

The Sushant Singh Rajput death, now mired in various layers of controversy, is seeing major activity on the drug front. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has detained four drug peddlers as part of its investigations into the drugs angle in the case. Carrying out raids in Mumbai's Powai and Andheri suburbs, besides Thane, the NCB has recovered a total quantity of 1.418 kg of contrabands like Charas and Ganja.

The sustained interrogation of siblings Rhea and Showik Chakraborty has revealed that around 20 people from B-Town were involved in the consumption and use of these drugs. The questioning of these 20 people is likely to begin from Monday onwards, enlarging the scope of the investigation which is now essentially a high-profile drug case under the auspices of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had summoned the late actor's former manager Shruti Modi and talent manager Jaya Saha for questioning on Wednesday. However, their questioning was called off after one of the team members of SIT tested positive for coronavirus. Shruti and Jaya were to be questioned about the drug use and delivery to Sushant and his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested last Tuesday, and if they were aware of this.

In the ongoing probe into the death of the actor, the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) on Wednesday said that there was "no breach" on the part of Dr RN Cooper hospital and the Mumbai police in allowing Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakrabarty inside the mortuary of the hospital. The SHRC said that based on the details of the waiting area, all the protocols were duly followed. The matter, therefore, has been disposed off.
