Sushant Singh Rajput Case: Siddharth Pithani granted 10-day parole for his wedding, to surrender on July 2
Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput‘s former associate and flatmate Siddharth Pithani has been granted 10-days parole for his marriage. Pithani had applied for bail but the court rejected his application and granted him parole. Siddharth Pithani is getting married on June 26. He will have to surrender after 10 days. NCB had arrested Pithani from Hyderabad on May 26. The ex-associate of late Rajput was absconding for long before being arrested by the NCB in a joint operation with its Hyderabad office in connection with a drug case linked with the death of SSR last year.
He was the first person to find the ‘Kedarnath’ actor hanging in his bedroom on June 14, 2020. A report in Mid-Day mentioned that Pithani had been avoiding the NCB inquiry since August 6, 2020, after which he was sent summoned thrice from the agency but he ignored all the summons. It was an Instagram post that he had made in April that helped the agency track his location. Pithani had posted a picture of himself posing in a gym in Hyderabad. The NCB team which was doing a digital investigation to search for his location immediately went to the gym that was tagged in his picture on Instagram and found out his address.

“It’s very surprising that CBI hasn’t been able to do anything. CBI should have done custodial interrogation of persons named in FIR and those who were at his residence especially (Siddharth) Pithani because he changed his stand,” Vikas Singh lawyer of Sushant said.
So far, the CBI has recorded statements of Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, Samuel Miranda, Pithani, personal staff Neeraj Singh, Keshav Bachane, Dipesh Sawant, Shruti Modi, talent manager Jaya Saha and several others.
