The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) who has been investigating the drug angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case has detained his friend and assistant director Rishikesh Pawar, for questioning as per a report in ANI.


Take a look at their tweet here.

Rishikesh was absconding since January 7 and the drug probe agency was in search for him. Recently, ANI tweeted that the Narcotics Control Bureau summoned him to appear before the agency.

Sushant Singh Rajput died by committing suicide on June 14 last year at his Bandra residence. His death case has been investigated by three agencies-the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED). During the NCB probe, many well-known Bollywood celebrities, including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh and Arjun Rampal among others were summoned by NCB for questioning. Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik were arrested by the NCB and later released on bail.

Earlier, the death case was investigated by the Mumbai Police. But as Sushant’s family and well-wishers demanded a CBI enquiry, the Supreme Court ordered for a CBI probe into the case.

Stay tuned for more updates on this case.
